What is Netzip? - Definition from WhatIs.com
Part of the Software applications glossary:

Netzip is a plug-in for Web browser s that allows you to view the files within a zip file from within your browser without the need to launch an external application. Netzip lets you create a zip file archive (including one that spans disks). It also lets you choose a compression algorithm when you create an archive. You can decompress and extract from ARJ , Lharc (LZH, LHA, LHZ), Z, GZ, and TAR (TAZ, TGZ, TAR.Z, TAR.GZ) files. Netzip also lets you temporarily "check out" files within a zip file and run installation utilities.

If downloading from a site with a Netzip server and its I-ZIP technology, you can view the contents of a zip file before downloading the entire file. I-ZIP lets you download individual files within the zip file archive.

Netzip is made by Software Builders International.
