HaoZip is an archive program which supports RAR and ZIP files. It also contains a kit of additional tools such as an image viewer, an MD5 checksum tool, and a picture converter.
The interface is nice, providing big buttons and warm colors. The settings menu gives you the possibility to change the default theme; in addition, it enables you to select the target archiving formats. As I've already mentioned, this tool can make the compression to popular output formats: ZIP and RAR; at the same time, it supports decompressing various format files, including .zip,. 7z, and .rar.

However, I didn't like that a new application (an image viewer) was installed without my permission. If any change is made, I expect to be notified. Or, maybe I was informed, but I didn't realize it because I can't read Chinese hieroglyphs. Not to mention that the help page is also in Chinese. Still, the installation went well, as it was in English.

As a final conclusion, I can say that the program works fast and it is easy to use. Also, you don't have restrictions for setting a password. Nowadays, a password bigger than 8 characters is usually required, but this tool allows you to save only 3 characters.
