    The Piriform developers have released a public beta of CCleaner for Mac. Previously only available on Windows, CCleaner is a popular cleaning and maintenance tool that allows users to easily delete, for example, the temporary internet files, cookies and history from a variety of web browsers, as well as from their system recycle bin and other temporary files.

    The freeware Mac maintenance tool beta, labelled version 1.00.026, currently supports cleaning the Safari and Firefox web browsers, including deleting the cache, history, cookies, download history and saved form information – support for more browsers, such as Google Chrome, is expected to arrive in a future version. With the tool, users can also clean the system trash folder, recent files, applications and servers, as well as the temporary files folder, from within a single application. The developers note that, as this is beta software that may contain bugs, it is "recommended for advanced users only". The final version is expected to arrive "in a month or two".

    The Windows version of CCleaner also includes several system tools, including a Registry Cleaner and a Driver Wiper tool that walks users through securely erasing the contests of free space on their drive(s).

    More details about the CCleaner for Mac Beta can be found in a post on the Piriform blog. CCleaner for Mac 1.00.026 Beta is available to download from the company's web site and supports Mac OS X 10.5 or later.
