Both builds focus on browser improvements, while PC users gain faster start-up times and improvements to the program’s support for window and DPI resizing.
CCleaner 5.10 opens with the promise of faster start-up times thanks to changes to its internal architecture. It also claims to improve its window resizing and DPI support.
Its numerous browser improvements include the added ability to now clean extension caches and cookies in Google Chrome.
Changes elsewhere also focus largely on cookies. There’s the promise of enhancements to CCleaner’s Intelligent Cookie Scan, along with by unspecified improvements to cookie management in Microsoft Edge. Firefox users gain improved session cleaning as well as added support for cleaning HSTS (HTTP Strict Transport Security) cookies.
Other documented changes are the usual minor GUI tweaks and bug fixes, plus a new translation for Corsican users.
The update is joined by the recently released CCleaner for Mac 1.10. Version 1.10 ensures CCleaner will work with the upcoming OS X El Capitan release, plus adds support for Microsoft Office 2016 cleaning. Like its PC counterpart, the new version also focusses its improvements on browser cleaning, covering Safari 8 (session and history), Opera (cache and saved password) and cookie management. A new portable version has also been added.
CCleaner 5.10 and CCleaner 5.10 Portable are available now as freeware downloads for PCs running Windows XP or later, while CCleaner for Mac 1.10 requires OS X 10.6.8 (Snow Leopard) or later. A Professional version 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.
