iZip is a file compression utility that comes as an alternative to using Mac's default archive manager. This program helps you create and extract ZIP files, supports drag-and-drop actions, and quickly completes any given task, without slowing down your Mac.

The application features a setup assistant which guides you every step of the way while creating or extracting archive files. This built-in tool might prove to be of good use to beginner Mac users.

You can create ZIP files, see which files are stored in your archive files, and easily extract the contents of your ZIP files. The app finishes any given task within moments, without using many CPU resources in the process.

Even though the program works 100%, I still don't think it's worth installing it on your Mac. Besides the fact that it comes with an unappealing interface, the application provides you with support for a very small amount of archive formats. You can easily find better solutions for handling archive files on your Mac.

Still, you don't have to pay a buck to use this utility on your Mac. So, you have nothing to lose if you decide to give it a try.
