LZMA - better than bzip2

Everyone sometimes needs to compress something: doing backup, sending files over Internet etc. Most of us uses gzip or bzip2. It's known than bzip2 has a bit better compression ratio but it's much slower. I'm one of that people who only used those two programs, often with conjunction with tar using

tar -czf
or
tar -cjf
and wasn't think I need something better. But one day I wandered if exists something else, some alternative and found LZMA.
