    Question Managing .rar/.zip files in Chrome OS?

    I recently came across the first occasions for me to need to handle zip and rar files on the Cr-48. First, the Dropbox Dropquest required zip files, and I essentially had to wait for a friend to catch up and open the files for me. Now I need to get a hold of some publications to read over, and the best I could manage was a .rar holding all of them.

    Is there any way to work with these files in Chrome OS?

    Thanks for the link. It's currently giving me errors though. The files upload fine, but then don't uncompress.

    The current version supports Zip files like normal folders in the files app.
