My goal was to find the best archiver/compressor for such home usage scenarios like archiving gigabytes of data to an external disk (or cloud) and/or unarchiving it on another Windows or macOS machine. Ideally it should compress, archive (be able process directories, not only files), be cross-platform, maintained and have GUI integration in a form of at least mouse context menu. If you tell that you don't need GUI I'm pretty sure you just don't have much stuff to work with.

The "Large Text Compression Benchmark" by Matt Mahoney is a well known place to refresh your knowledge on existing tools but it is sorted only by a compression ratio. Take a look at the first place -- cmix -- to compress the 1GB text file it needs 30GB of RAM and 1 week of CPU time. There are such archivers that use less that 1MB of RAM or less than a minute of time. There will be other interesting notes that make some archivers unusable.

How do we sort the table by compression ratio, time and memory at the same time? Should we invent a formula like score = ratio / time / memory? But while the amount of free time for different users varies a lot the memory limit is nearly equal so why not ratio / time / memory^2? Or ratio / log(time) / memory? And the compression ratio has some theoretical limits so why don't we subtract some 100MB from the resulting archive before dividing? You might notice that the idea of inventing a formula just sucks. Fortunately I don't do this for years already -- instead I use my "PCBR algorithm" that I can't force myself to describe normally in README (because I'm lazy to spend time on things that already work) that "sorts tables by several columns at the same time". So I've copied the table from HTML page, parsed it (it has some numbers weirdly shifted, absend or sometimes they don't even have a space in between so most of the code are regexes) and fed it into the PCBR.

The most interesting things are always on both ends. nakamichi -- "On the test machine it takes 95 days and 302 GB of memory to compress and 1.3 seconds and 2 GB to decompress" -- the source code and comments with gifs and dragons can be found here on Github. Now about the leaders:

  1. The best one is GRZipII -- this was made in 2004 (and about half of the list is from 2004-2006, mostly made by Russian programmers -- I remember that time, we were students who were just starting using internet, download books, and amounts of data grew so quickly). The website seems to be dead. It has only one line long description on the benchmark page but according to the author of another archiver it was the best competitor among BWT-based. The author have moved to USA to work for Microsoft around 11 years ago and the source code of the archiver isn't available on Github. There is only the libbsc compression library there but archivers that use it are only on 19th and 24th positions in my rating. There is also a fork of GRZipII included in quickbms source code (the libs folder), updated by some French guy but nothing separate and official.
  2. The next one is Info-ZIP from 2008 by a large group of programmers who loved to work together -- amazing 0.1MB of RAM usage on Linux and about 1MB on Windows with pretty good speed and even GUI but kind of abandoned and then according to Wikipedia multiple CVEs were published. And finally even after patches being applied: "FreeBSD has opted to replace info-zip utilities".
  3. WinRAR is 70th in the original benchmark table because the compression rate is not the best but it's made for people and so it is well rounded as having relatively good speed and memory usage. A bad thing about it that I know is that once in few years there are some incompatible changes in RAR file format. Maybe it's the only one archiver that has the relevant subreddit.
  4. gzip124hack -- peronally I won't trust an unility with word "hack" in its name to move my files. Otherwise you might consider using it. The tool is a fork of gzip that has the compression ratio improved. The problem of gzip is that it works only with a single file at a time.
  5. bssc has only two versions, both "alpha", made in 2005. We don't want to use unmaintained stuff because some applications may barely work correctly on modern Windows and macOS compatibility is even worse.
  6. PCBR allows input table rows to be ranked equally so the sixth position was taken by three tools at once. ppms (2006), bzp (2008) and the well known gzip that I already mentioned. According to superuser.com on Windows for gzip I have to use 7zip... that is obviously misleading and wrong. These are different things and 7zip is only on the 17th position in my rating. Instead I would recomment to try binaries from the GnuWin32 project.
  7. scmppm (2006), CTXf (2003) and lzsr (probably only one version and author has moved it to the "Old" section of his Download page).
  8. M1x2 looks abandoned since 2010.
  9. ppmd according to the description is kind of the same as ppms (the 6th position).
  10. sr3c is an old thing that needs hacks to be compiled on Windows. The PAQ family Wikipedia article has a Comparison section that shows that these were made rather for compression ratio than for speed or low memory usage but nevertheless they are in my top-10 so you might want to read a huge PAQ Data Compression Programs article about them.
  11. I was surprised (and this is why I didn't stop at 10) but one of three archivers on this position is jar. I knew I can unpack those files since the age of J2ME phone applications but I never thought about using it as an archiver like WinRAR or 7Zip. If SUN Oracle or anyone else were so kind to make a GUI integration I would give it a try.
  12. bzip2 is equivalent to gzip (and so can't archive folders) but is lower in the rating so there is probably no point to use it.

All other mentions of context menu integration or GUI are commercial, abandoned projects or just low in rating. I'll metions some of them: FreeArc (15th, 2004, but website does not open for me), stuffit (15th, commercial), flashzip (24th, by the author of LZSR but not in the "Old" Downloads section), pim (14th, 2008), DGCA (13th, 2006, Japanese website so I don't really understand what it says) and the ksc (the worst tool according to my rating but surprisingly it has GUI).

So as a conclusion I would say two things. That I recommend gzip to those who need to compress a single file or automate such processes and WinRAR to those who are not allergic to the popup and don't mind the potential incompatibility issues. And that unfortunately spending the whole evening on this I didn't discover anything useful. Most of this stuff is unmaintaned and is often incompatible with each other even if the file extension is the same. Also the benchmark is using a dump of Wikipedia that is a text, not binary data like images, music, game assets -- this actually may change numbers a lot. After spending hours on this summary I realised that this benchmark is more for computer scientists but for home usage you should start with chosing the most compatible archive format such as .zip or .tar.gz (that your OS might be able to browse and unpack without tools installed) and then look at some another benchmark that would compare how archivers work specifically with this format. I didn't find (if you do, let me know) a benchmark of such kind with as much detail as in one by Matt Mahoney but maybe the WinRAR+zip will win (this one lacks memory usage measurement).
