Free Internet Window Washer

Editors' Review

by   / April 22, 2009

Free Internet Window Washer is yet another contender in the browsing-privacy category, but its spotty performance and lack of navigational flow left a lot to be desired.

The user interface is bland in appearance, but simple enough to understand. However, the commands along the left side of the small window aren't in the most logical order. The result is an interface that lacks any kind of flow, making it difficult to know where to go next. Regardless, using the Wash Settings menu, we were able to check off the cleaning options we wanted to include in the wipe process. The program does extend its cleaning functionality to Netscape, Opera, and Firefox in addition to Internet Explorer. It also lets you schedule cleanings using preset increments. But it all proved pointless because while the program successfully emptied our Recycle Bin and cleared any temporary files, it failed to clear our IE browsing history. A tally at the bottom of the interface lets you know the total number of items and space to be washed, but we found it inaccurate when compared with its actual performance.

The program offers a Help menu, but it doesn't make up for the poorly designed user interface and unreliable performance. We recommend you skip this free program for a more functional browsing-privacy tool.
