Stuffit Expander is an all-in-one application for extraction of many kinds of archives appearing on the Internet today. Whether your software has come bundled as a ZIP file, a RAR archive or even a Macintosh BIN file, Mac OS Self Extracting Archives or even binhex encoded files, Stuffit Expander can read it! Many of the formats Stuffit Expander can read are those that were originally Macintosh only. That all changed when Stuffit Expander came as all those files were suddenly supported on the Windows platform. You don't even need to extract the whole archive if you need just a couple of files. Just open it in Stuffit Expander and extract what you want.

On launch Stuffit Expander will automatically search for all the compatible archives it can find. Then just double-click one to reveal its contents. There's no settings and no configuration needed. It all works out of the box.

Should the archive you want to access not be found automatically, just click open from the file menu and browse for the archive yourself. Then just click it and press open and the contents will magically appear in the Stuffit expander window. A must-have application - especially for those who work with Macs a lot.
