Description

***For Chrome OS Only***

Enable mounting of a variety of archive formats (and different compression schemes) in the Files.app just like the native ZIP/RAR support that exists today. Most notably, 7z & tarballs!

Supported archive formats:
7z ar cab cpio crx deb iso jar lha/lzh mtree pax rpm tar warc
Supported compression formats:
bz2/bzip/bzip2 gz/gzip lzma lz4 lzip lzo/lzop uu xz Z zstd

Please be aware that the extraction performance is not optimal with these "streaming" archive formats because of the design of the file format itself. There is little that can be done in the extension when the file itself does not include an index. Whenever you want to extract a file, the whole archive must be scanned. The larger the archive file (and the # of files in it), the slower things will be.

If you wish to uninstall, please follow the documentation:

If your Chromebook is enrolled and your administrator has force-installed the extension, you need to talk to them instead. There's nothing I can do about that.

What has inspired us?

Extore is a team of professionals who are passionate about creating extensions for web browsers. This devotion also gives us opportunity to appreciate work of other people. We get inspired by useful, open source extensions made by developers all over the world. Our strong belief is that one should share helpful add-ons with others. That’s why we’d like to present you our ever-growing list of favourite extensions that have inspired us. Moreover, as you probably have already learned, sometimes struggling for the best brings an end to the good. Talking about add-ons it often turns out that an upgrade is worse then previous version. Also it can become really tricky to get back to the beloved version of your favourite extension. That’s why we’re going to make not only the latest, but all versions of our favourite (and we hope yours too) add-ons available for download. No more compromises, just stick to the version you really like!
