Don't use the Mac version

about WinRAR · · Helpful Not helpful 2 Helpful

The Mac version of WinRAR is just the Windows version wrapped inside Wine. A.k.a., it sucks. Drag-and-drop is nonexistent, the user interface clashes with the rest of OS X, your mouse scrolls way too fast when using it, hidden files are unhidden, and nothing really works that well in general.

As a windows user, I love this piece of software. I don't use any other unzipping software other than just this. Support for different file types and very speedy in its unzipping, of course depending on the file size.

Not for Mac OS X

All you get for Mac OS X is a command-line utility. No GUI interface. Mac OS X already includes command line utilities for zipping and unzipping archives.

Same on GNU/Linux.

Poor features

Honestly Bandizip and ZipWare (both free) are much superior in terms of UI, better drag'n'drop, supported formats, etc. and are lightweight.
I still wonder why people knows only WinRAR and 7Zip....

I don’t agree that WinRAR has a bad GUI and does not support a lot of formats. But the versions for Mac and GNU/Linux don’t even have a GUI, they are only command line tools, although the price is the same, I guess. Nevertheless, the programs that you suggest are only available for Windows.

It's not fully free, But it feels much more stable and complete then 7zip or PeaZip
