WinRAR is somewhat of a legendary piece of software that revolutionized the packaging of life. Now, Windows 11 is becoming a native .RAR support is in for the upcoming update. It has reacted to the inclusion humorously on social media, but given Microsoft’s very light touch support of the .zip format, I suspect it will remain popular.
WinRAR is a legendary piece of trial ware software that revolutionizes file sharing online, owing to its ability to archive, encrypt, and compress entire folders of content into single files. The .rar format has become a broadly used alternative to .zip, owing to its more algorithms. While some open-source alternatives like .7z have challenged their dominance in recent years, it remains one of the best Windows apps of all time, used by hundreds of millions of people.
With billions of people, my favorite archiving tool is .rar which can also be used to add encryption and password protection to new ones. You can download it for free on a trial basis for 40 days, but the trial period is notoriously easy to skip. In 20 years, I haven’t personally purchased it. I feel compelled to do so after seeing this endearing social post from the firm.
WinRAR on Twitter
Going viral on Twitter, the official WinRAR channel posted the meme “This is fine” in response to the news that Windows 11 is getting native support for the .RAR format, announced during Microsoft Build 2023.
Many people around the world are trying to support WinRAR which can be seen through the tweets on Twitter. You can check out the tweets here.
