BleachBit quickly frees disk space, removes hidden junk, and easily guards your privacy. Erase cache, delete cookies, clear Internet history, remove unused localizations, shred logs, and delete temporary files. Designed for Linux and Windows systems, it wipes clean 70 applications including Firefox, Internet Explorer, Flash, Google Chrome, Opera, Safari, Adobe Reader, APT, and more!

Windows is to CCleaner, and Linux is to… what? Honestly, while Windows already has CCleaner, Linux lacks a good program to clean its drive. But not anymore, because BleachBit is taking the center stage. BleachBit can free or overwrite disk space and shred files with a simple check-box interface. It also has a simple, two-pane interface where one lists installed apps and able-to-clean areas, and the other tells you what type of files each options move to trash. How does it work? Simple! Just scroll down the list, check the boxes that you want to clean, and click the Delete button. Aside from cleaning, BleachBit can clear your memory drive, swap partitions, delete broken shortcuts, remove languages you don’t utilize, and many more application-based functions. Linux users can find this tool a refreshing welcome for freeing up a bit of space, and you can download it here for free.
