A good file compressor these days is very essential given the amount of information that is transferred over the internet. Many email services allow only a few Megabits of data storage, not to mention the excessive download time a 50MB file can be for a user on a dial-up connection. So what makes a good compression application? I would say the answer is in the numbers; the numbers of course of the results from the tests we ran on 7 different data compressors using different compression technologies. Collecting several files and categorizing each test, we collected data compression rate, time and space saved for each of the compression applications.The review can be found here
