Well, if you're looking for the "Best compression utility" 7zip has one of the best compression methods around, far better than what WinRAR can do. But the most widely used compression tool around is probably WinRAR these days :)

I used winACE for a long time but figured out that the good ol' winRAR still owns :)

winACE has better compression, but has problems reading RAR-files... and a couple of other general errors...

so everybody: KEEP THE BEST FILECOMPRESSER ALIVE! USE WINRAR!

WinRAR because of the multimedia compression :)

winrar, because of its ability to create SFX files that can extract to defined paths (%programfiles%, %appdata%, etc.)

winzip is out of contention for me, but it's amazing the way winrar's gained reputation - when I started using winrar 2.50 in 2000, it had no attraction for me except that it could repair zips and rars, and winzip was pretty good at ver7.0.

Lots of winrar lovers. Never used it myself. I've used Iceows, Bigspeedzipper, Izarc, and 7zip. Izarc is my fave.
