jZip is a software that you can use to create archives and extract content from compressed files. It supports several extensions, including RAR, ZIP, TAR and 7-ZIP.

Since jZip is ad-supported, you should pay attention when installing it. It offers to download some additional tools that it doesn't actually need to work properly, as well as to make some changes to your web browsers.

The interface of the application is simplistic and easy to navigate through. Creating a new archive is seamlessly accomplished. All you have to do is set its name and format, and select the files you want to compress.

In the list you can view the name, type, size, ratio and packed value of each file. Plus, you can mail an archive or view its properties.

Additionally, you can password-protect a compressed file, test it, as well as split or merge it with others. Extracting from an archive is easy, since jZip is integrated in the Explorer context menu.

In the "Configuration" menu, you can set files associations and the temporary folder path, disable shell extension and change the appearance (e.g. toolbar, view).

The program uses a low amount of system resources and finishes a task in a short amount of time without popping up any errors. Our tests run smoothly (it froze only once, when we attempted to select the "Mail Archive" option).

Unfortunately, jZip doesn't let you configure advanced settings for archives (e.g. compression method and size), but that's because we're talking about a program that offers a straightforward solution when it comes to compressing and decompressing files. We strongly recommend jZip to all users.
