Nope, compression software ain’t sexy. But when you’ve gotta open that file, you’ve gotta open that file. Smith Micro Software has released the latest version of its popular StuffIt Deluxe software for Mac that provides several improvements to help embiggen or ensmallen files as your needs may be.
The new version is intended to make it easier to work with large files. Using its Destinations feature, you can send files wherever you want including popular cloud services Dropbox, Google Drive or Microsoft OneDrive. Other improved features allow you to more easily browse archives, access StuffIt features directly through the Finder and open any archive, with more than 30 compression formats support.
