Sometimes we notice that our browsers start to work slower, and their data are starting to take more space, and then comes to the aid of the utility Profile-cleaner.

 

You can use it to reduce the size of the profiles browsers, organizing them sqlite database using algorithms to re-index sqlite3. The term "browser" is used in the app description is not entirely correct, because the application also works with some clients for e-mail and news.

Supported browsers:

*Chromium

*Conkeror

*Firefox (stable, beta, and aurora-version)

*Google-chrome (stable, beta and dev-version)

*Version of the Aurora from Heftig (https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=117157)

*Midori

*Newsbeuter

*Seamonkey

*Thunderbird

*Tor-browser

Installation into Linux Mint:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:graysky/utils
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install profile-cleaner

To start Profile-cleaner, use the command

profile-cleaner

Below on the screenshot I tried it in the browser Midori
