Many Mac users are not aware that a Mac computer collects and stores different information, at times useful but often not. For example, a Mac remembers the most recent opened URLs, folders, applications and different documents.

Mac also has the Trash, the clipboard, font caches, temporary files and more. Applications such as Firefox, Camina and others store download information, cookies, URL history, site icons, data form information and even passwords. Some chat utilities also leave contact details, conversation history in various caches on the Mac. All this information just sits on the Mac, consuming the space, growing and some files can even slow down Mac’s performance.
