Once again, the latest release focuses on fine-tuning the program’s browser-cleaning tools, with tweaks for Opera, Chrome and Edge the major highlights.
CCleaner 5.16’s main feature is added support for cleaning Opera’s GPU and Application caches, while it also updates the management of Chrome Browser Plug-ins.
Other browser changes are improvements to existing features, so Edge users should see better cleaning of their Temporary Files folder, while CCleaner also promises improved cleaning of Chrome’s IndexedDB, Quote Manager DB and Service Worker caches.
The new release also promises better navigation of the program using the keyboard, along with the usual mix of unspecified minor bug fixes, GUI tweaks and translation updates.
The update comes one week after Piriform also rolled out Defragger 2.21, which came with the promise of improved performance for both analysis and defragging of drives, along with better use of memory and the memory architecture. It also launched optimised 64-bit builds for Windows 8 and 10 users among other changes and bug fixes.
CCleaner 5.16 and CCleaner 5.16 Portable are available now as freeware downloads for PCs running Windows XP or later, as are Defraggler 2.21 and Defraggler 2.21 Portable. A Professional version of CCleaner offering additional features including real-time monitoring and complete system cleaning is also available, and the best place to get the Windows version is the Downloadcrew Software Store, where it costs just $17.46, an exclusive discount of 30 per cent off the MSRP.
