The Unarchiver is a more capable replacement for BOMArchiveHelper, the built-in archive unpacker program in Mac OS X.

The Unarchiver is designed to handle many more formats than BOMArchiveHelper, and to better fit in with the design of the Finder. It can also handle filenames in foreign character sets, created with non-English versions of other operating systems.

Supported file formats include Zip, Tar-GZip, Tar-BZip2, Rar, 7-zip, LhA and StuffIt.

The Unarchiver is free, and works with Panther, Tiger and Leopard.
