I am very happy to announce the latest version of CleanCache. CleanCache 3.0 is bigger and better than before! Now better is always a good thing but bigger in the .NET world is most definitely a bad thing.

In the designing of CleanCache 2.0 and CleanMOCache 1.0, I purposely seperated both products due to the memory footprints of each…meaning they both use up too much RAM! In combining both programs into CleanCache 3.0, the memory footprint, at times, can be quite large.

You may see CleanCache using upwards of 20+MB of RAM at times but once .NET garbage collection does kick in, the RAM usage is more along the lines of 12-13 MB.

CleanCache 3.0 is a free (for 1 – 2 systems), very powerful Internet Explorer 6.0, Mozilla, Netscape, Firefox and Windows 2000/XP cleaner.

I wrote CleanCache 3.0 to be very unobtrusive…just set it and forget it. CleanCache 3.0 runs from the system tray and will clean after browser close, Windows start and Windows shutdown.
