    Hi guys.

    I'm wondering if there are any good tools out there such as Ccleaner(Win) available for the Mac.

    I've heard/read about Onyx, Macpilot.

    But isn't there any more tools than those above available.
    What do you use-and recommend?

    Cheers.

    **Disclaimer** I don't own a Mac, but since it is darwin _some_ similarity should exist

    I don't know what programs, would leave traces behind on a Mac?

    What exact functionality are you looking for as ccleaner has a few :p

    I mean if you are speaking of internet history that can be cleaned from the program menus now
    And Firefox's cache should be able to use a tmpfs which would be wiped on each reboot..

    Closest thing you can get is Onyx. But OS X doesn't really get cluttered with temporary files like Windows, so I wouldn't recommend using it too often.

    Get an uninstaller, leftovers from removed apps in ~/Library are the major culprit when it comes to clutter.
    But IMO you don't need to. OS X has no registry, plaintext files generally don't slow down the system.

    Thanks for your answers guys.

    So, I guess Onyx is the most suiteable for me if I would like something similar to Ccleaner.

    Or an Uninstaller perhaps as katio said.

    Thanks.
