Go to Version Tracker and search for UnRarX2.2 that will do the job.

And it should be included on your Mac, should it not?

Have you tried double clicking the RAR file?

Standard Zip files can be opened within OSX simply by double clicking the file. Any other compression formats i strongly recommend Stuffit Expander, its opened pretty much everything ive ever thrown at it

Stuffit Expander used to come pre-installed on Macs. Since Tiger, I think, you have to download it yourself as it doesn't come on the Install/Restore disks anymore.

I like Zipeg because it shows you the content of a Zip file so that you can selectively unarchive a particular file. If only someone made a *reasonably priced* version of Winzip (StuffIt is way overpriced IMO).

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
