To open RAR files on a Mac I recommend a utility from a a reliable source. If you google for ways to open RAR files on a Mac, you will find a number of utilities – all of which invite you to download them. But are they reliable and are they free from malicious code?
I downloaded the free Stuffit Expander from Smith Micro. The version I downloaded was v15.0.4 (v2011) English Only – 32.1 MB (.dmg) OSX 10.5 and up Lion Compatible.
The StuffIt page explains that Stuffit Expander can uncompress zip archives, decompress tar, gzip and bzip archives, MIME files and others. As it says:
It opens files created with WinZip®, 7zX, iShrink, SimplyRAR, Rarify, Rucksack (formerly iArchiver), BetterZip, RarMachine, GUI Tar, CleanArchiver, Springy, TarPit, RAR, Ez7z, Keka, and the compression utilities built into recent versions of Windows and Mac OS X.
Minimum System Requirements
Mac OS X 10.5 or higher. OS Lion compatible.
I needed to unzip a RAR font file that I had downloaded after seeing it on Free Typography. It is Infinity font and after seeing it there, I checked out the designer and found the Behance page for Tarin Yuangtrakul, a twenty-year-old artist and designer from Bangkok, Thailand. The Infinity font is on Tarin’s gallery page.
I have some reservations about the letter ‘s’ in the typeset, but overall it is a nice, thin-lined font and I have added it to my growing collection that I use in Photoshop.
Another font on the Free Typography site that I like is Kilogram. Check it out.
