"only StuffIt offers newly-patented technology that provides 100% pixel-perfect compression of 24-bit images, including TIFFs, PNGs, BMPs and GIFs."

What are they talking about? Aside from the 256 color palette limit of GIF, all of those formats are already "100% pixel-perfect," and all of them support compression… TIFF can use ZIP or LZW, PNG uses DEFLATE, BMP can use RLE, and GIF uses LZW.

Not to mention, any normal file compressor can handle any type of file… I can throw a BMP into a ZIP archive with no ill effects, or a TIFF into a 7Z. They just make up more and more nonsense as they try to stay relevant.

Can we please rid the internet of SITs?

Update- get expander here: http://my.smithmicro.com/downloads/trials/expander_mac.html

all this is useful for is .sit which i havent seen in ages. BetterZip is by far a much greater program for handling compressed files.

Another way to avoid annoyances: Don't use the installer. Ctrl-click, choose "Show Package Contents", navigate to Contents/Resources/Payload/Stuffit. The Expander.app is in here, just drag it to your Applications folder.

It's my alternative to .zip in Mac

Why do so many people insist they need Stuffit? What's wrong with zip? It's free and built-in to the OS. I rarely even see anything in .sit format anymore. The sooner Stuffit dies a tragic death the better.
