Unlike other online conversion services out there, CloudConvert sports an elegant interface and the layout is very clean. It supports over 200 file formats as of now. The downside, however, it doesn’t offer a browse button to quickly browse to the file that you want to convert. Instead, you need to drag and drop the file on to CloudConvert webpage.
As soon as the conversion gets completed, a download button will appear on the page.
On the other side, it can notify you when the conversion is completed and even send files to Dropbox or Google Drive. Supports over 50 file formats from Zip to RAR to ISO.

ZamZar is a free service to quickly convert files from one format to another. ZamZar supported tens of file formats including RAR, ZIP, 7Z, CAB, and JPG.
Though ZamZar supports over 50 file formats, the catch is that you need to enter your email address to get the converted file. That is, after converting your RAR file to Zip, ZamZar doesn’t offer you a download link but instead it sends out a mail containing the download link to your email address.
