Editors' Review

With its inviting interface and powerful underpinnings, Pacifist for Mac enables you to extract only parts of archives as well as do partial installs of selected software package modules. This shareware app also features QuickLook integration that allows you to peek into an archive right from the Finder by pressing the space bar. The 15-second delay you have to endure while trialing the app can be quite annoying, though.

After a speedy installation, Pacifist for Mac asks you for permission to install a QuickLook plugin that enables you to peek into archives without unzipping them. The app opens with a quick tutorial on the different modes it has and presents you with the main window, which features a clean and accessible interface. You'll like the ability to scan for deleted applications and try to determine how the deleted app was installed and whether it's possible to reinstall it. While testing we found this feature to be fairly accurate, although it didn't detect the associated DMG file in one of the tests. In terms of transfer speed, the app is moderately fast, requiring about ten seconds to extract a 20MB file from a ZIP archive.

If you want complete control over what gets installed on your system, as well as the ability to unzip only parts of archives, you'll want Pacifist for Mac on your computer. Also, you may find it extremely useful if you have a data cap or slow Internet connection, since it lets you selectively download files from an archive hosted on the Web.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Pacifist for Mac 3.2.3.
