Default Helpful Tool(s) for viewing archives

Wasn't quite sure where this thread would fit more appropriately. If this isn't where it should be at, please let me know/move accordingly.

Here's a list of tools that come in handy when it comes to reading comics (cbr,cbz, other archive types). All of them are Freeware. I've use ESET Antivirus to scan all programs after downloading and all are clean from their source.

These aren't in any particular order, but they're ones I use currently and/or have used. This isn't a review, it's just something I thought would be helpful.

Note: If .gif are archived, none of the readers will play the .gif. See the Optional program for viewing gifs.

Comical (http://comical.sourceforge.net/)
It was the first that I used when it came to viewing cbr,cbz and other archive formats (zip, rar). I've always thought it to be pretty light weight of a program. Only thing I didn't like was that when it came to scrolling through pages, you couldn't use the arrow keys to cycle through the pages (at least I couldn't figure a way to change it). This application doesn't hasn't had any support in a while, but it's does the trick.

YetAnotherComicReader - YACReader (http://www.yacreader.com/downloads)
This one, to me, has features that I had wanted in Comical. There's a library feature which allows you to manage your collection. The only draw back is the library is separated from the actual viewing program. You can run the library program to maintain your comics/archived images without having to worry about viewing the images. The library program will launch the main program for viewing the comics/archived images.

ComicRack (http://comicrack.cyolito.com/downloads)
In short, it's YACReader with the library feature intact, meaning the reader and library is one whole program. It has a tab feature so you can view more than one comic at a time that YACReader doesn't offer.
Optional/Honorable mention

XNView/XNViewMP (http://www.xnview.com/en/xnview/) (http://www.xnview.com/en/xnviewmp/)

Pretty good for viewing images that aren't archived (png, gif, jpeg, etc).
