What is Wicked Good Unarchiver?
Wicked Good Unarchiver is a Chrome extension that enables mounting of various archive formats, including 7z, tar, iso, and more, in the Chrome OS Files.app. This app allows the user direct support for these formats, akin to the native ZIP/RAR support. Widely utilized for 7z & tarballs, but recent Chrome OS releases have integrated these features.
For Chrome OS Only
NB: This has largely been obsoleted by recent CrOS releases. R104+ should support these archive formats: 7z crx iso tar And it should support these compression formats: bz2/bzip/bzip2 gz/gzip lzma xz Z zstd
So there isn't much reason to install anymore.
Enable mounting of a variety of archive formats (and different compression schemes) in the Files.app just like the native ZIP/RAR support that exists today. Most notably, 7z & tarballs!
