Easy 7-Zip is an open source file decompression and compression application that offers a high compression ratio and supports a large variety of archive formats. It's, in fact, an improved version of another open source archiver, the more popular 7-Zip utility. It adds some handy extra features to 7-zip which result in a bit handier and more easy-to-use application.

Among these improvements and additional features, the most remarkable ones are the icons added to the context menu entries, the few handy options added to the “Extract” dialog, letting you, for example, open the output folder or delete the source archive after the extraction is completed, or the possibility to minimize the window that shows a compression's progress to the system tray.

As you can probably notice, these aren't some groundbreaking improvements that would create a truly important difference between Easy 7-Zip and the original 7-Zip. 7-Zip was already an amazing application, with little left to improve or criticize about it. I'd say that the things offered by Easy 7-Zip are just minor tweaks, but for some 7-Zip users, they could matter quite a lot.
