Default Compression software for iBook G4?

My niece has an ibook g4 and I told her I'd find out what software she might get to zip files...is Aladdin Stuffit what everyone would suggest she gets or is there other (better??) compression software available?

Thanks...

She doesn’t necessarily need anything because compression is built into OS X.

Tell her to Control-Click on a file or folder and a popup will give her a bunch of options, one of which is to create an archive (which will be a Zip archive).

If she has StuffIt Deluxe, it will also be listed there, and it does offer some additional capabilities. But since I have learned the Control-Click trick, I rarely need StuffIt.

There used to be a separate Zip utility for the Mac, but there is no longere any need for it.
