Cross platform zip formats

A Linux user was having trouble dowloading my archived website because it was in self-extracting *.exe format. I added a copy in *.zip format for the benefit of Linux users.

What about Mac users? Can they unzip zip files too?

Is there any other archive format like *.7z or *.gz that can be opened by Mac and Linus users, but which is more compact than standard zip?

Looks like Mac users will be able to manage fine with the free version of Stuffit.

Thanks
