WinUtilities Free History Cleaner is an efficient and extremely easy-to-use tool that keeps your Internet history private. It works with all the best-known Internet browsers, including Firefox, Opera, Google Chrome, MSN Explorer, and, of course, MS Internet Explorer. But this free tool can not only wipe away all traces of the sites you have been visiting, but also of many widely-used applications - such as Microsoft Office, KaZaA, Acrobat, ACDSee, or Real Player - thanks to its plug-in support.
Its efficiency goes beyond the DoD 5220.22-M - from the US Department of Defense - and the National Security Agency's standards, thus making sure that none of the files deleted during the cleaning process will ever be recoverable through any means. Free History Cleaner will thoroughly seek for any trace that your Internet activities always leave behind without you knowing it. This obviously includes the sites you have visited, but also the cookies, the videos you have watched online, your chat logs, the temporary files, the cache and the index.dat files, etc. This way, whatever you do with your computer and wherever you go when surfing the net, will remain private.
One of the features that this free tool includes and that you will not find easily in any similar application is its support for plug-ins, including the possibility of creating your own plug-ins. The program comes with more than 500 plug-ins related to specific actions and/or programs that have this tendency of leaving behind files that you do not need anymore and that tell a lot about your computer activities. You can easily use any of this, or build your own, which will let you customize the way the program works to actually fit your browsing habits. Few free cleaning tools will offer you a feature like this on top of an efficient cleaning job.
