Cisdem BetterUnarchiver for Mac Review-1.

Better than the built in archive utility

"I originally downloaded BetterUnarchiver to see if it would operate quicker than the regular Mac unarchiver, but I discovered that it actually was much better anyway. It can handle many, many more file types than the built in archive utility, and operates so smoothly."

Evan Allen, US
Cisdem BetterUnarchiver for Mac Review-2.

The Best Unarchiving tool ever

"This has long been my go-to utility for unarchiving files. It handles pretty much everything that you throw at it, and does it guickly and without issue. Definitely the best unarchiving tool on Mac OS X ever!"

Great App

"This is great because I can finally unzip files with Japanese titles and not have the Japanese turn into bogus characters. Most other unarchivers do not extract asian fonts correctly, this does it perfectly!"

Robert Lopez, US

Preview Archive Contents Without Decompressing

Aims to be the only unarchiving program you will ever need, Cisdem BetterUnarchiver also lets you preview the files inside archives, such as text, images or music, and unzip only those files you really need. If you have another app installed that can open a file, Archives can also use that app to open contained files.

Decompressing According To Your Need

Additionally, the Mac Unarchiver gives you more options when extracting files from an archive, you can load archive files in batch and extract in one go. You can also select partial of the files in one archive to only extract the selected files which is very handy if you download a lot of archived files from the internet.
