Now that 7zip 15.12 was released last week, lets talk about that cons and the pros of both 7zip and WinRAR.
Which one would you use?
Why use one over the other?

>inb4 epic shilling for either of those and no one cares about what anyone else says if they disagree
>>
>>51577994
Op is a faggot
>>
winrar is "free"
7z is actually free but it lacks the options I use the most in winrar
>>
>>51578051
what options
>>
PeaZip
>>
>>51578096
custom compression presets integrated in the context menu, so I configure one for just one-click compression and other for one-click encription
>>
>>51577994
I use both because I'm no autist

7zip excels at tasks like extracting exe files for example, sometimes you don't want to install something completely just so you can run a single exe in wine
>>
7z is faster free and has way better compression

WinRar is outclassed in every category
>>
I can open an image directly in WinRAR and view it, 7zip on the other hand gives an error
>>
>>51578153
>LZMA2
>faster
better compression, worst time of the popular algorithms
>>
>>51578176
7z is pretty slow to me to uncompress
>>
>>51578132
also i use the files as containers some times, where i use to drag and drop files into it directly and winrar detects the operation and proceeds automatically,
but 7z doesnt let me drop files into a container in the first place
>>

>7-Zip is the clear performance winner of our file archiving and compression tools round-up. It sets the standard for both compression ratio and time with its very own 7z compression format. It manages to beat MagicRAR, WinRAR, and WinZip for the best compression ratio, even with its Fastest Compression setting enabled. 7-Zip is also a lot faster than the competition if the LZMA2 algorithm is used. It took 7-Zip only 25 seconds to compress our benchmark files and folders with Hyper-Threading enabled. Meanwhile, WinRAR took 44 seconds, WinZip 51 seconds, and MagicRAR an arduous 159 seconds.

7-ZIP MASTER RACE

But 7z is free
doesnt /g/ like free things?
>>
>>51578950
Actually no it doesn't. It's well explained that 7-zip can't directly open pictures and that's the usual behavior.
>>
>>51578122
This.
>>
>>51579155

I got WinRAR free almost a decade ago doing the TrialPay offer which they still have, it's a non-issue really.

I use WinRAR because it works and does more for me than 7zip has ever been able to do including a lot of repair related things. 7zip is so plain and boring and missing features that I require so, WinRAR is the winner and will remain as such for years to come.

Peazip is laggy. It takes a couple seconds or more to show up, but 7zip is perceivably instant.

7-zip can actually make use of a 64 core system
>>
Does 7zip automatically make a new folder when you right click ant hit extract now?

>>51577994
