ArchView is an extension of Firefox. It can open archive file online and get the catalog. It also can preview or download files in archive. Currently, it support ZIP, RAR archives and ISO-9660 CD images. The most fancy feature of ArchView is that it can open an individal file without download the whole archive, since it only fetch the necessary portion. So it's suitable for checking the content of archive before download. ArchView can support HTTP and FTP protocols. It can also handle local files via file: protocol.

What ArchView Is Not

ArchView doesn't intend to replace other archivers (eg. 7-Zip, WinZip or WinRAR). It lacks some features, can't add or delete files in archive. ArchView doesn't support compression, and has no plan to realize it. ArchView is a companion and supplementation of those tools, since they are designed for handle local files. Almost none of them can deal with archive files on Web or FTP server. And ArchView can work together with Firefox, that make open online archive file like normal web pages.
