Automatic shredding for more browsers - Mireth Technology releases NetShred X 3.5
Mireth Technology has released version 3.5 of NetShred for Macintosh OS X, it’s popular privacy utility that automatically shreds web browser cache, browser history files, download cache, email trash, Apple junk mail, Mailsmith spam and more. Version 3.5 adds support for two more browsers - Firefox and Camino, as well as shredding Safari icons.
Anyone can look through your web browser’s cache and history files and see what information you have accessed on the web. Do you really want to risk having your private information read by anyone with access to your computer? NetShred X provides an easy, permanent way of securely deleting browser cache, history files, email trash and more. Permanent because it shreds (not just deletes) these files so the contents cannot be recovered. Easy because it runs automatically when you quit from your browser or email application.

- the option to shred (not just delete) browser cache, history, email trash, download cache, Apple junk mail, Mailsmith spam, Safari icons
- runs automatically when you quit from your browser/email
