7-zip is a very very small program which you can use to zip files. It does not only do zip files, it also does tar files, rar files and pretty much all those different formats that you can use to compress files. Plus it also has an own format which is called 7z. That 7zip format is very, very powerful. It’s very efficient, has a high compression rate, and you see more and more programs using this to pack their setup routines or to make their installation files smaller.
