ArchView is a firefox plugin used to open the archives (e.g. iso, zip and rar etc.) on the go, without actually downloading them.
Mostly when people want to open or see any archive file like iso, rar or zip, before downloading the actual file so that they can look whether their desired file is present in the archive or not, but having no other alternatives to do so.
But by using the ArchView, one can directly open the ISO, Rar and Zip archives files from your browser itself, and if you want to download some specific file or files from that archive, then you can do that as well from the same software.
To view the inner portions of the archive files ArchView gets small chunk of the file directly from the server.
At present, it only supports ISO, Zip, and Rar archive files.
You can download the files by using the file:, FTP or the HTTP protocol.

Now whenever you want to download some particular file from any zip or rar or iso archive, you can do them very easily.
Archview uses XUL and HTML formats to display the contents within a few moments (as per your choice).
