    I prefer WinRar for the GUI interface , to browse and search files with a specific keyword and to wiew the results quickly.

    No, it's Shareware that is licensed by seat. I have a lot of computers, so... no option.

    My opinion, I like 7zip way more than WinRAR. For one thing, it is free. Second, it is lightweight and UI is exactly how it needs to be, simple. Third, it can be used as an alternative to Windows Explorer, you basically get a full-blown explorer while still being able to archive/de-archive everything.
    When I was building WinPEs, 7zip was what I used as explorer alternate, after trying many of them, and they sucked in the PE.

    WinRAR 7.xx cannot create RAR4 archives anymore. Keep a copy of 6.24 around if you depend on it.

    Only creation (and updating) is affected, listing and extracting still works.
