Mac OS X Zip Expanding Utility

Firefox (and possibly other applications) may ask you what you want to do with .zip archives that you download from the Internet. If you want to expand them with Mac OS X (rather than StuffIt Expander), you may be unsure of which application actually does the job. You're looking for Archive Utility (in Leopard and later) or BOMArchiveHelper (in Tiger). In either case, the application is stored in Hard Drive/System/Library/Core Services/. Don't move it from there, though, or you'll confuse matters.

Originally commissioned for use by Apple resellers in Australia, Apple Australia has made the guide available for anyone needing solid information about Macs and the Internet.

Software developers who wish to have their Internet-related products (commercial, shareware, or freeware) included should contact <netguide@starfish.net.au>, and anyone interested in other comprehensive collections of Macintosh Internet resources should check out the Web sites below.
