LOL!

Everyone knows WinRAR is the standard ;)

You missed out one very important zipping tool Freedom, 7-Zip (www.7-zip.org)

It has the highest compression of any zip utility when compressing files with the 7z algorithm.

Try it and add it to your poll :)

Ok

Best Currently is:
WinACE => Good For Tight Compression But Slow
WinRAR => Fast a Compression, But Fast

Other:
WinZIP => Just Lame
PKZIP => Also Lame
Others => Lame

I use winzip for making zip files and compressing and packaging my own stuff and winrar to usually open zip and rar files. I like winzips self-extractors (esp. size) and the speed of the 'extract to here' shell function for winrar (loads faster). I'd say winrar is the better choice, but they both have their own advantages.

:D For compression & speed they come out roughly the same. You could have problems uncompressing files using the wrong decompressor. Especially .ace files
WinZip for .zip files
Winrar for .rar files
Winace for .ace files
;)

I guarantee you that it has the best compression.
Eventhough the compression isn't a drastic difference, I would use it to compress. Too bad you can't make rar files with it. :(

WinRAR's compression is basically the same as WinZip's compression. As far as I know WinACE has the best compression, I've done tests. Although, I have yet to try 7z zipping using Freedom.

First post, mmmm.
ummm :rolleyes:
I use winace for most things, its very flexible and gives better compression than winrar. But if you want the best compression there is, try u-harc, hard to find, been a beta for as long as i can remember, takes ages to compress and decompress, runs in dos, but damn it gives good compression, if anyone has tried it they'll know what i mean.

shouldn't we be able to attach ace files to these posts?:D :D
