When it comes to clearing your browser's history, you are likely using the built-in option of the web browser to do that, or a program like CCleaner if you are working with multiple browsers.
Both methods work really well and there is not really a reason to switch to another program to do that job.
The program concentrates on options to clean history traces from web browsers, with history being all the things that get saved or recorded by the browser during use.
This includes the cache and cookies, the downloads and form history, as well as saved passwords and synchronization data.
The thing that I like most about Privacy Agent is that it is really easy to use. You install it, start it up, click the scan button, and then either directly on the delete privacy traces button, or after you have looked at the program's findings in the scan report.
And that's it. The program supports Google Chrome, Firefox, Safari and Internet Explorer. It feels strange that the developers are not supporting the Opera browser as well.
This is actually one of the things to criticize, the other the lack of information that you get when you open the scan report. While you see the number of traces found for each trace type, you can't delve deeper into the matter. While you may not want to do just that, some users might prefer an option to uncheck some of the traces from being deleted, while keeping others checked for removal. With Privacy Agent, this is unfortunately not possible.
Privacy Agent is fully compatible with recent 32-bit and 64-bit editions of the Microsoft Windows operating system, starting with Windows XP all the way up to the latest versions. According to the homepage, a Mac version is in the making. (via Addictive Tips)
