The following review written by one of the Software Informer contributors applies to version 14.5
Winzip is the traditional Windows file compression application that has been redesigned and enhanced with new features. Its interface resembles Microsoft latest applications, and the ribbon bar has most of the options available on it.
For old fashioned users the old interface can be enabled instead.

WinZip opens and extracts content from the widest range of archive formats, including Zip, Zipx, RAR, 7Z, BZ2, LHA, CAB, IMG, ISO. It also supports FIPS-197 certified 128- and 256-bit AES encryption for archive protection and creates self-extracting Zip files, ideal for distribution. All these mentioned features aren’t new; at least, for the last four years, WinZip has not changed much. But still among new features users will find:

A new design. A faster file compression. An integrated FTP client to upload backups to an off-site server. Encryption is added just by checking the option and pressing Zip. A contents preview has been added without the need of extracting files temporarily. It compresses digital photos and graphic images by 20 - 25% with no loss of quality. Other features include Windows 7 support, and an Office like interface with ribbon toolbars and clear icons for every feature and action.

Pros

  • FTP uploading.
  • Redesigned interface.
  • Faster compression speeds.
  • One click compression with encryption.
  • Better image compression.

Cons

  • Crashes on Windows 7.
