Editors' Review

Free RAR Extract Frog extracts RAR archive files. RAR files aren't uncommon, but some ZIP tools don't handle the format; even if they do, it's often quicker and easier to use a tool like Free RAR Extract Frog. Files can be added by browsing, drag-and-drop, or right-clicking and selecting Extract on context menus. Though basic, Free RAR Extract Frog includes useful options like passwords and skins.

Pros

UnRAR: Free RAR Extract Frog uses an easy, three-step process to "unRAR" or extract RAR archives to the same folder as the RAR archive or a folder of your choice.

Passwords: We could enter a default password for encrypted files or set the app to try to open encrypted files using a customizable password list.

Options: Other options include the ability to create new subfolders for each extracted archive, interface languages, always-on-top, and wizard and dialog behavior.

Cons

One-trick frog: Though it does its job well and with some useful options, extracting RAR files is all Free RAR Extract Frog does, making it hard to justify if your default compression tool extracts RAR files, too (although the password options tilts the balance back toward Free RAR Extract Frog).

Bottom Line

Sometimes the simplest solution is best. More complicated compression and archiving solutions are available, but if you really just need to "unRAR" some RAR archives, it's hard to imagine an easier-to-use tool than Free RAR Extract Frog.

"Extracts all RAR files easily"

December 10, 2014  |  By LadyGaia

 |  Version: Free RAR Extract Frog 5.50

Pros

Extracts all sorts of RAR files very quick and easy. Beautiful skinnable interface.

Cons

Some reviewers say this is malware and try to scare everyone. I scanned this app with VirusTotal (https://www.virustotal.com/de/file/066f98c4f0ab5e35244efae6c9958825e365ac19976d87ae579f83a9dbf9d074/analysis/) and 52 out of 56 virus scanners rate it as 100% clean, four throw a false positive or a warning, because the installer shows some offers for additional ads.

The developer states on his website: "This app is funded mainly by the ads that are displayed during the installation process. The app itself is 100% free of ads. Of course, we recommend that you only test and install additional apps that you really are interested in. Please pay close attention during the installation. Many thanks!"

I think apps have to be funded somehow and a few ads during the installation are a one time thing, so I'm okay with it.

Summary

Fast and easy-to-use app. Pay attention during the installation and only install additional apps if you like them.
