      New Theme Set Up   11/14/2017

      We have a new theme created by Vincent that's now available to everyone. It has been set as the default theme, so everyone should see it when you refresh the page. If you still aren't seeing it, you can select it from the Theme drop-down at the bottom of the page. It's called Assimilation. Thanks Vincent. Awesome looking theme!

I think you mean between zip and 7z. The 7z archive uses LZMA2, compression level 9, with a single thread, and compressed with solid compression. Zip just uses the basic DEFLATE algorithm that, while having the most compatibility across systems (all systems have native support for opening zip archives (not sure about iOS)), it isn't the best at reducing the archive size. :)
