      WinRAR does not have an OS X compatible GUI. Only the WinRAR command line tool is OS X compatible.

      The Unarchiver requires the user to unzip the files into a folder. 7-zip allows the user to open a preview of the zip, pull out files and edit things, and simply close the program to rezip it.

      While Keka works with more file formats that OS X's native compressed file handler, that's about all that it does. Keka does not let you view a file without first decompressing it into another directory.

      It uses the same engine and compression of 7zip, so if you care more about that than the GUI, this is the best.
