CCleaner 3.18 adds support for Firefox 12, Chrome 20
Piriform Inc has updated its freeware Windows cleaning tool with added support for the latest versions of Firefox and Chrome. CCleaner 3.18 also adds a multi-select tool to the detailed results view, providing users with more control over choosing which items to clean from their computer.
Version 3.18, which is also available as a standalone portable tool, also adds cleaning tools for a handful of new applications, plus a number of feature and interface improvements, and minor bug fixes.
It also introduces a new multi-select tool: after scanning the computer and providing a results summary, users can double-click an entry to view its details up close. The multi-select tool comes into play here, allowing the user to [Ctrl]-click any entries they wish, then right-click to access more options, such as excluding those items from being cleaned.
CCleaner 3.18 also includes a number of improvements, including better support for 64-bit IE add-ons, an improved folder detection algorithm for cleaning items, interface tweaks (including scrolling interface for including and excluding dialogue boxes) and better compatibility with Windows 7’s [Alt] + [Tab] functionality.
The Driver Wiper tool benefits from a better interface, while version 3.18 adds support for cleaning GIMP 2.8, Corel VideoStudio Pro X5 and MS Security Client, while beefing up its support for OpenOffice 3 and AIMP 3. The update is rounded off with a number of unspecified minor user-interface tweaks and bug fixes.
