zgrep will search them.
zcat or zless will dump them to stdout.
lesspipe + less will allow you to view them with less, as you would any other file (lesspipe will also render numerous other file formats as straight text, which is particularly useful).
Woe unto you if you're on a system without these tools, but that's another story. Writing your own shell wrappers (scripts/functions) is trivial.
