Cache & cookie washer for Netscape

While surfing the Net you may not be even aware that you are constantly on watch. The browser leaves the mark of your presence on the Web site you visited. This mark of presence is called cookie, which is in fact a virtual reference for the Web site you visited. These cookies are a breach of your privacy on the Internet and are considered risky. The cache & cookie washer for Netscape software can be used for cleaning up the mark of presence when using the Netscape. Moreover, it also clears the information regarding the sites you visited on the Internet from the memory and hard disk. Thus, besides ensuring privacy on the Internet, this software also saves the valuable disk space. Though you can manually clean the history of your activities from the Netscape, yet it is a difficult task. Moreover, some files (like the "index.dat" file contained in the history folder of Netscape) cannot be cleaned within Windows. Even if you clean cache, cookies, and history from the Netscape browser regularly, the index.dat files will continue to store information about the Web sites you visited and cookies that have been saved. A common problem is that these index.dat files can grow to an enormous size, taking up drive space and slowing down the Netscape browser. So, if you wish to maintain privacy on the Internet and also save the precious disk space then download this software from http://www.webroot.com. If you are an Internet Explorer user, then you can also down the Internet Explorer version.
