The Zipper... Drop. Zip. Done.

The smallest compression app. Extremely fast, extremely reliable. Uses tar & bzip2 or gzip. Handles zip compression. No distracting interface. Just works.


Mac OS X 10.2 or later

It couldn't be any easier than this! Works beautifully for creating .gz files for my website using mod_gzip

Drag & Drop, and it even overwrites the existing .gz file if there is one. Simple and elegant!

No, the decompress of The Zipper works just fine on my PowerBook G4 with Leopard. The zipping process works beautifully with a 6.5 MB folder. It took only 30 seconds to compress the file into 6.4 MB .tar.bz2 formate.

I could not decompress the tbz file. I kept getting this error: "Error writing to The Zipper/The Zipper.app/Contents/ the folder could not be created". Or something like it. I was doubleclicking the downloade file in my Downloads folder.
