Editors' Review

+

RAR files are a popular compression format, and this free extractor offers reliable service with a skinnable interface.

Free RAR Extract Frog is oddly named, but it performs well in extracting RAR files. The interface is simply a large pane with a large illustration of a frog. However, you can change the graphic simply by dragging and dropping a JPEG or other graphics file into the pane. The interface includes four other tabs: About, Links, Thanks, and Appreciation. All but the Links tab offers obvious items related to the application itself. It holds links to freeware and wallpapers that have no clear relationship to this application.

For its primary function, this tool performed well in our tests. Extracting files was simple: we dragged and dropped a RAR file to the pane, and the tool automatically extracted it and saved it in the same folder as the original compressed file. RAR Extract Frog performed its chores quickly and efficiently.

This tool is simple to use, but it doesn't offer a lot of bells and whistles, so advanced users wanting a feature-laden application may want to give this program a pass. But users wanting a basic extraction tool will find RAR Extract Frog a friendly addition to their tool boxes.
