Vim and Zip files

Today, by mistake, I tried to open a zipfile using vim.
vim archive.zip
I was presented with a list of the files contained in the zipfile, and was instructed to Select a file with cursor and press ENTER. I didn't know that Vim had a zipfile brower! Very nice.

(If this doesn't work for you, you need to install the zipfile browser plugin. Google for zip.vim to find it.)
