Xarchiver is a lightweight desktop independent archive manager built with the GTK+2 toolkit. Xarchiver has been designed from the ground up to be fast and easy-to-use. Its user interface is clean and intuitive, and does not include any confusing or useless options. Xarchiver includes support for 7-zip, arj, bzip2, gzip, rar, lha, deb, rpm (works without the RPM executable), tar and zip archives through the relevant command line tools. Password detection is automatic for arj, zip and rar files. Password encryption is available for these file types, as well as 7-zip. Xarchiver can also generate self-extracting binaries from zip and 7-zip archives. It supports drag and drop through the XDS protocol, and Firefox-like tabs.
