The Archive Browser is an OS X utility that lets you browse the contents of archives, as well as extract them. It will let you open files from inside archives, and lets you preview them using Quick Look.
The Archive Browser is based on The Unarchiver, which means it can handle a large number of different archive formats.
The Archive Browser can handle common formats like Zip, RAR, 7-zip, Tar, Gzip and Bzip2, as well as older formats like StuffIt, DiskDoubler, LZH, ARJ and ARC.
The Archive Browser can also handle other kinds of formats, like CD and DVD images such as ISO, BIN, MDF, NRG and CDI, many Windows self-extracting EXE files, and can even extract media from Flash SWF files.
The Archive Browser will also handle different filename encodings gracefully.
For the curious, The Archive Browser will also show you a lot of information about the archives and their contents.
A detailed list with all formats supported by The Archive Browser is available HERE.
NOTE: To buy The Archive Browser via the App Store, an Apple account is required.
