A very good (and free!) alternative to BetterZip. I prefer MacZip's GUI. Allows direct browsing of all common formats. Maybe lacks some advanced features compared to BetterZip, but very handy for daily use!

Another interesting use for MacZip: it unpacks .crx extensions (from Chrome webstore), very useful if you use ungoogled Chromium, for example, as sometimes it won't open directly an extension.

This application seems to have a new name: MacZip, which has been updated for Big Sur. The eZip file is not found when you click download, so go to the dev's site for MacZip.

MU> Current version is 1.9.1. I didn't remember I had installed it long time ago and it looks like a nice alternative to BetterZip. I've rediscovered it while searching for an app to open Android's apk files.

Didn't like Winzip or BetterZip, give this one a try for now. Will use it rarely but it looks very nice and has dark mode support as well. Tried to unpack a few zip files or even iso and it works fine. I really like it.

Has anybody tried this? It looks good in the description, but this is an unknown developer. If you've had good luck with this, I'd like to know.
