.rar files
 
Can someone suggest a good utility for extracting .rar files.

Seems everything I download is bloated with a bunch of crap I don't wan't / need.

Thanks

That is annoying and when I'm extracting files I don't wan to have to think about making an extra.

Why bother?

7zip is free.. faster.. and better than WinRAR

While 7zip is free, I think that winrar is better at least in UI and usability. Just my opinion.

What part of the UI does someone REALLY use in winrar? Its all about the contextual menus. :thumb:
