When reading an archive, it is automatically extracted to a temporary folder. This folder is then simply loaded into the built-in Web Reader. The temporary folder will clean up on its own when it reaches a large enough size, so there's no need to worry about your disk filling up over time.

Don't forget you can right-click archives to show a context menu, allowing you to edit/download/delete them.

In the reader, you can use the keyboard arrows or the built-in arrow icons to move from page to page. You can also simply click the right or left side of the image. When reading an archive, the three button icons on the rightside of the page offer various options.

Reader View

The Page Overlay button (also actionable by pressing CTRL) will show all the pages of the currently opened archive, allowing for quick navigation and preview.
