    Default Mac users - what .rar and .zip extractor program do you use?

    Preferably free or cheap.

    I use StuffIt Expander, which is free and extracts both .zip and .rar files. It came with my computer, so I assumed that it was part of the Mac OS, but apparently not.

    My Mac (which is brand new) doesn't seem to have come with anything that recognizes these file types. I'll try to download StuffIt later.

    UnRarX and i think it's archive utility that unzips the zips

    Mac OS X comes with Archive Utility which hands zip, tar, etc... but not .sit or .rar. StuffIt Utility fills those gaps, but I find it a little bloated and slow. I prefer The Unarchiver, which seems to be smaller, faster and less intrusive... although for .sit files, StuffIt has the advantage.

    Also good is the BetterZip QuickLook generator: http://macitbetter.com/BetterZip-Quick-Look-Generator... which lets you instantly see the files names of what's in an archive without opening it by pressing spacebar. Helpful when you have an archive sitting around, but you aren't sure what's in it, exactly.
