CacheViewer

CNET Editors' review

Too many cache-cleaning programs say they are deleting your cache entries without actually showing you what's being deleted. CacheViewer lets you see the specific files in your cache; although, we would have liked to have seen a more comprehensive deletion feature.

You can easily access the program through your Tools menu, but a hotkey combo or a toolbar shortcut would have made nice additions. The interface window lists the Key, Size, Device, and date the cache entry was fetched. The memory and disk space for each entry also is revealed. As we selected a specific entry, we were able to view the physical entry in a small window, along with its detailed information. The one major feature that the program was lacking is a clear cache option. You can delete each entry by right-clicking on it, but you can only do one entry at a time. We were able to use the Clear Private Data feature that comes with Firefox, but it would have been nice to have it all right there in one window.

Still, this is a great program for anyone tired of being in the dark when it comes to their cache cleaner. We recommend using this freeware program in conjunction with your favorite cache cleaner.

    "Skip this; use History window instead. This does less!!"

    March 9, 2009  |   By C-coder

    Version: CacheViewer 0.4.3

    Pros

    Installs cleanly like all legitimate FF add-ons.

    Cons

    It doesn't search web pages for text; it only searches the TITLES (and URLS) of the pages cached.

    Summary

    Here's how it SHOULD work! A couple of hundred web browses ago you read a neat fact about Gandhi. A cache viewer should let you type in Gandhi and show/open pages with that text. But it only searches page TITLES and URLS, not page bodies!! Weeaakk! The most important part is missing.
