The ZIP file format was developed by Phil Katz and acts as a container for one or more files that have been "zipped" up into a single format. Developed in 1989, it became increasingly popular as more files were shared with the advent of email and the Internet. Larger files were tricky to share, as they would either take too long to send, or consume too much storage space - the ZIP file was created to address these problems. Supported by almost all compression programs, ZIP's allow files to be stored separately within the archive, allowing each individual file to be compressed by removing redundant data. One reason for the popularity of the ZIP format is that it is possible to extract and uncompress specific files from the archive without having to extract everything. Both Windows and MacOS allow users to uncompress ZIP files simply double clicking the file in Windows Explorer or Finder.
