Preview contents of archive files before downloading on Firefox

Every now and then I come across a Firefox extension that makes me say Wow! This is one such extension. The addon ArchView makes it possible to preview the contents of a zipped file without downloading it, online, right inside the browser! That's not all.

ArchView currently supports RAR, ZIP formats and ISO CD image; HTTP, FTP and file protocols.

- Not support multi-volume archive.
- Not support RAR decoding, need third-party software.
- Can't open encrypted file in ZIP.
- Can't show RAR comment.

Although you can change the cover photo as often as you like, it’s meant to be static – something which you design and leave it for at least a few weeks or months like a redesigned website.
