Dev site says: Coming: " New IceClean 4.0a.. totally renewed" But this is the current version--and the site is certainly up. Great utility, head and shoulders above the rest! Let's hope it's updated.

The IceClean page on the developer's site is gone. Is this app kaput? I am a long-time user and fan, who's been waiting eagerly for the next version. Please let us know if it's not coming

I've used IceClean since early on when it was first released, and generally speaking I think it's a very good tool. Much like Onyx, it has most of the typical maintenance tools most users may ever need, along with a few extras that Onyx is lacking, though IceClean too is lacking a few extras that Onyx offers. As a system maintenance tool, some of the extras that IceClean offers really are out of place. It's not the type of app that I would expect to do a traceroute, whois, and other internet lookup tasks that have zip to do with my computer. One big problem I have with IceClean is the interface. It's just really bad. For starters, all of the system maintenance tasks are run from the menubar, and is lacking in any explanations of what the tasks do before run. This is a fine option for automation because, unlike Onyx, all of those tasks can be run with keyboard commands. If one desired, you could very easily use Apple's Automator app to launch IceClean and run some tools at specified times/days without being present. For the average user though, Onyx's interface is friendlier with the tools right there in the main window with explanations of what many of them do. And speaking of the main window, the tools that are there are mostly tools like Lookup, Netstat, Whois… tools that, as before, aren't the central function of this app. It's just very out-of-place. IceClean also doesn't do well with providing a clear indicator that a task is underway, or how far it has to go. You get a subtle spinning wheel in the bottom corner, and sometimes a sound when the task is done. That's typically it. So when it comes right down to it, I see IceClean as a tool better suited to more experienced users who are comfortable with what the tool does and want to take advantage of the greater ease IceClean offers in the sense of automation and keyboard commands to run the tools it has. With some more work and extensive refining of the user interface, this could in time become the must-have tool for novices and experienced users alike.

5 STARS ALL THE WAY! I can't BELIEVE the top two that "others" recommended were SLCC (Snow Leopard Cache Cleaner) and OnyX. Having used BOTH (OnyX not being as bad as SLCC, but that's not saying much), this app blows them both completely away. In fact SLCC (which I PAID for) I DUMPED because it was so pathetic, and the ONLY reason I keep "CleanMyMac" (which I ALSO paid for) is that the "Language Files" cleanup is worthwhile - otherwise, it is FAR too high-maintenance, causing you to make SURE that you aren't going to let it "clean" an often VERY necessary file. With IceClean 3.4.5 not only do you not have that worry, the additional functionality built in is FANTASTIC. I ESPECIALLY like the "Whois" that I can use in conjunction with "Hands Off!" to see EXACTLY which domains those IP addresses that pop up asking for "permissions" are - which previously I would resort to "Better Whois" to identify (a tedious method compared to having it right at hand in the IceClean 3.4.5 app. Everyone will naturally have their own "opinions" of what the "best" cleaning solution is - but I for one am VERY happy to have chanced upon IceClean 3.4.5 via MacUpdate (a MUST have in itself), and intend to make a donation as soon as my financial situation allows me too. I ONLY WISH I could get my money back for SLCC, AND CleanMyMac, and donate it ALL. So there's my "review" for what it's worth. If you haven't given IceClean 3.4.5 a test drive - do so ASAP!

In regards to the poll: The field of maintenance utilities is full of competitors, freeware and shareware, and both of these categories have several good releases available. The problem is none of them seem to be fully complete - i.e. have a full complement of cleanup tools along with a complete set of "hidden features" access, complemented with a friendly, easy to use GUI. For this reason I must maintain a number of similar programs in my utilities toolbox in order to obtain the complete maintenance results full access to the features I desire to inspect, modify and change. If someone came out with a reliable product that "did it all" and kept it up to date as OSX evolves, I would be more than happy to pay a respectable fair price for it. But given the fact I have not as yet seen such a product, I prefer to stick with a number of freeware products that together meet my needs. This is why I voted "No" on the poll.
