    "Can they really do that and claim it's adware free?"

    Version: Xslimmer 1.9.4

    Pros

    Haven't tried app yet

    Cons

    Beware this download. Comes loaded with "Spigot" which seems to be an appropriate word for the barrage of adware and spyware that will get loaded on your computer with this install!

    Summary

    This install totally highjacked my browser, installed Yahoo! as the default search engine and added a bunch of extensions to track my activity. This is totally unacceptable to me, if not downright sleazy. Haven't had a chance to try the app yet, but CNET, you blow!

    What's new in version 1.7.5
    Xslimmer 1.7.5 fixes two rare crasher issues that were introduced in Xslimmer 1.7.4. First, Xslimmer became confused when trying to slim certain compiled Java classes, which looked like Universal Binaries containing several architectures when in fact they did not. In addition, Xslimmer would rarely (see details below) create HFS-compressed backups and applications that were not correctly flagged as compressed files, thus rendering them useless. This version fixes that problem retroactively, so those malformed backups can be used to restore the original apps.
