Best crunchers in 2020

Salut und tach auch,

I was wondering which crunchers give the best results both in crunch rate and decrunch speed. I don't care if the crunching is slow. And the decrunch does not have to be blazing fast, either. But the compression ratio should be excellent. I am also interested in articles covering how to improve compression ratio based on how the input file might be organized - if that's feasible.

Thanks in advance!

Maybe Aplib or LZSA2.

Hardcore crunching & sloooow decrunching: Shrinkler for 4k (7 seconds of decrunch for The Third Kind), or Exomizer for bigger files (2 times slower than Aplib).
