What is the best lossless data compression format for general use... zip or 7z... what are the pros and cons of each
>>
xz or txz
>>
zstd will probably be the best once it's more widely supported
>>

Does out of the box support matter that much? It's not like you are constantly packing/unpacking stuff with embedded devices.

rar is better than both. Plus it's a fun word to say. I like to say it slowly, in a drawn out fashion while I look in the. mirror giving myself bedroom eyes.

7zip has greater efficiency and an overall more advanced format. Zip (without using some later features like alternative compression and such) has universal support and requires no software installation on any OS released in the past two decades so when dealing with parents and other sorts of normies, zip is the only sane choice.

7zip is the only widely adopted archive container to support LZMA2
>>
>>88028377
>rar is better than both.
does not support LZMA2 and can only be created by paid software

.zip, .7z and .rar are all just containers. The compression algorithm that compressed the thing they are holding can be the same or different.

I use zip when I need wide compatibility and 7z when I need best performance.

.tar.xz and .tar.zstd are the best, depending on whether you want great compression or speed.
