Compression Tools


By hagrin - Posted on 05 August 2006

Usually, I link directly to the news story source, but to get the full usefulness out of this posting I am going to link to a discussion thread.

Slashdot has an article and discussion talking about compression study where two relatively unknowns, WinRK and Squeez, show better compression ratios than such well known apps such as WinZip and WinRAR. However, as the Slashdot comments show, no evaluation was done when testing high quality, slow compression settings. Therefore, you should read the review linked on Slashdot with a careful eye (as you should always when reading news on the Internet).

I'll be trying out WinRK and posting some results later on this post in the comments.
