Windows only: Only a month after its last update, one of our favourite Windows utilities, CCleaner, has released a new update that now adds full support for Firefox 4 and IE 9 (both released last month) as well as several other improvements.Per its change log, CCleaner v3.05 adds, among other things: iTunes cookie management, new environment variables for user documents (e.g., %MyMusic%), registry cleaning for Windows Services, and cleaning for additional applications—notably, many IM and chat programs including Skype, AIM, and Pidgin.
Though it’s not a major upgrade, it’s an important one, since CCleaner now supports Windows users who have the latest browsers, whether you’ve switched from Chrome to Firefox 4 (like Whitson has) or are playing with IE9’s new features. Of course, CCleaner still supports Chrome, Opera, and Safari too. (Given the Piriform developers’ always-speedy improvements, no doubt as soon as new versions of those browsers come out, CCleaner will also update to support them.)
If you haven’t tried CCleaner yet, consider this free system optimisation, privacy, and cleaning tool for your Windows machine. Also, don’t forget to schedule CCleaner for automatic system maintenance.
