This is how an archive manager should be: intuitive, super simple, versatile, quick. A great work horse. Possibly those doing heaps of compression on a regular basis write their own routines, but this is great for the rest of us. Only gripe is that the name (file-roller) is not the one listed in the mint menu (Archive Manager), but it still appears if you type file-roller.

Undoubtedly the best archive manager for Linux. Should be included everywhere by default, not just Gnome.
