Extracting Files Online From Popular Zip Formats With WobZIP.com

March 11, 2009

in Internet,News

Well Suppose you got a zipped file from somewhere compressed with any of the popular zip formats like RAR, TAR, 7z etc and now you are unable to decompress that zipped format because you don’t have any decompressing utility like WinRAR etc. Now if you want to settle this problem online by avoiding the process of downloading and installing any decompressing utility then all you need to do is to just go to WobZIP and upload your compressed file.
Currently WobZIP supports these formats: 7z, ZIP, GZIP, BZIP2, TAR, RAR, CAB, ISO, ARJ, LZHCHM, Z, CPIO, RPM, DEB and NSIS. The maximum file size that you can upload is 100Mb. WobZIP currently uses 7-zip to perform the uncompression. One interesting thing about WobZIP that worths a mention is that it can extract the online zipped files too. Just provide the URL of the online zipped file to WobZIP in the form shown below and WobZIP will extract the files from it.
After your files have been uploaded, a list of your files will appear along with a “Delete all files” button. You can delete your files by clicking on that button.

Note: WobZip is not guaranteed to be bug-free, because it is still in the mode of development and testing.

Yes you are absolutely right Alfred!
At public computers we generally don’t have decompressing programs …..so definitely it would be most useful at public computers!

Check out http://www.ezyzip.com. Lets you zip files online too, but there is no uploading/downloading of files to a server. It runs as a java applet in the browser, so it executes locally, making it much quicker and easier to use.
