A Virtual File System lets programs look inside archived or compressed files, or access remote files without recompiling the programs or changing the kernel. It currently supports floppies, tar and gzip files, zip, bzip2, ar and rar files, ftp sessions, http, webdav, rsh/rcp, ssh/scp. Quite a few other handlers are implemented with the Midnight Commander's external FS.
