The 7-Zip file browser.

7-Zip is a cross-platform freeware open source archiving program written in C++ that supports many different compression, package, and file system formats. It also has customizable Windows context-menu integration. It is vastly superior to WinZip and WinRar.

Personal

7-Zip is my primary compression utility. Although PeaZip supports a few more exotic formats, I do not like the bloated interface of PeaZip, and 7-Zip supports all of the formats I use on a regular basis, so I stick with 7-Zip.
