Searching through compressed files with Spotlight!

Spotlight lacks one feature and it is the possibility of searching through compressed files such as .zip. There is a great free plugin that solves this problem. It is called Ziplight Spotlight Plugin 1.2. What is great about it is that once it is installed, you don't even know it's there. You can continue using the same Spotlight menu as before. The only difference is that zipped files will appear in the result and it won't only be because of the title, but because of what is inside. You can learn more or download Ziplight Spotlight Plugin here from MacUpdate.

You can look inside compressed archivies (zip, rar, ecc ecc) with Quick Look too! You've to install a plugin for Quick Look named Better Zip (download it here: ). Once installed you can press SPACE BAR over a ZIP (Rar, ecc ecc) file and you'll see inside it without open it.
You can install Folder Viewer plugin for QuickLook to see inside a folder with QuickLook without open that folder.
