Purity: Empty Application Caches and Free-up Drive Space
Purity is a simple tool that allows you to empty the caches and logs of various applications on your Mac. If you've ever experienced issues with an application not functioning correctly or crashing frequently, it could be due to corrupted or damaged caches or logs. While closing an application usually removes most of these problems, Purity can access and remove hard-to-get-at files, unnecessary files, and files you may have forgotten about.
One of the standout features of Purity is its ability to recover significant amounts of hard drive space. You'll be surprised by how much space the caches and logs of various programs take up, and if you're running low on storage, Purity can be a real space saver.
It's worth noting that while Purity supports a wide range of applications, there are some omissions. Notably, Firefox 4 was not initially supported, although it has since been added. The developer seems responsive to user requests and actively works on improving the software.
Overall, Purity is a useful tool for cleaning and freeing up space on your Mac, which can potentially improve the performance of your applications.
