If you are into open source, and want to get even more compression, check out 7-ZIP http://www.7-zip.org/ I've been very happy with it, although I will admit that I do have WinRAR and PKZip on my box as well.

The freeware file manager PowerDesk (which I used to document) will also open RARs. Click the "free trial" button here: http://www.v-com.com/product/PowerDesk_Home.html.
