What can Windows users do that’s not so easy on the Mac? Look inside .zip archives without extracting all the files inside first.
Zip archives are easy to create on the Mac, of course, and the archive is just a double click away from extracting all the files inside, but what if you just want to see what’s inside the archive before opening it up? No. Can. Do. But Windows users can.
Mac users have to decompress a .zip archive file simply to see what’s inside. Then, if you add or delete files, you have to compress the files into a .zip archive again. That’s humbug.
To do what most Windows users can already do Mac users need an app like Zipster.
What does Zipster do? It lets you browse .zip archive files, and copy files in and out just like a folder in the Finder.
In fact, Zipster does Windows one better by allowing most Mac apps to open and save files in a Mac zipped archive on the fly. That’s a very handy time saver. Apple should have that functionality built in to OS X.
