Yet another fast Java decompiler

Today a colleague of mine pointed me to a really nice piece of software JD Java Decompiler.
Besides .class files it also opens .jar files and here is where it shines. All known types are hyperlink-ed so you can quickly jump between classes in the same .jar. You have Open Type, Java Search, Type Hierarchy, etc. - it's a mini Eclipse.
Speaking of Eclipse, JD also provides a plug-in for the ubiquitous Java IDE.

Did I mention it's very fast? That's because it is powered by native C++ ;). (Don't worry Linux version is also available.)

And it's also free. Still you are encouraged to support the author if you find it useful.

My .jar's have been associated with WinRar for years - time for a change.
