CoolZip is a compression program. What makes it stand out is its ability to uncompress files in zip, cab, zoo, arj, lha, lhz, rar, arc, tar, gz, enc, uue, and xxe formats without the need of external programs. It can add, extract, test, delete, and view compressed files including self extracting compressed files. It also supports drag and drop and integrates with Windows Explorer.

It has an easy to use interface for the novice user but is powerful enough for the power user. If you are like me you have WinRar, WinZip, Cabinet file viewer, WinArj and other archive programs on your computer. You have to switch back and forth depending on what type compression the file you want to uncompress uses. This all takes up time and space. It is nice to have one program that will do it all. Take advantage of the free trial and see how much time it will save you and then register it and see how much space you regain when you eliminate those other programs.
