Some say creativity strikes like lightning, others that it’s a gift bestowed from the muse, yet a few state that there is no magic in it, at all. I think design is a process. As with anything that requires vision and action it takes time, it takes risk, it takes trust. On your part and on mine.
Design is a process. Trust it.

The Story Behind Browser Care
Browser Care comes from the idea to delete all the files accumulated on the Mac by browsers during surfing and restore them back to their defaults. The first free version which was rather roughly called “Pulisci Safari” (available only in Italian) was made with “Apple Script Editor”. It allowed people to reset all the Safari data (eg. history, cache etc.) at the same time.
After a few months and several hundred downloads, I understood that it could be an interesting idea to work on. People don’t like to have unnecessary files that take up space on the disk. I liked the idea to create an easy and simple application.
Before starting to write the code I wanted to focus on what the final result would be. There are too many applications that can clean the Mac by means of wash products, soaps and sponge icons. I wanted something different. A jar of pills gave me the idea: “well, let’s take care of the browsers”. On the label: “Only for Mac. No more than once a week. Browser Care.”
Everyone has more or less a couple of browsers in his Mac and they include the ability to delete their own data (eg. history, cache, cookies etc.). But how much data is really deleted? How long does it take to execute the same operations in each browser all the time? Who informs us when the data size becomes too large? It generally takes a long time to organize all these things and this experience can be negative for the user who sometimes has to execute very difficult commands.
I wanted to solve this issue with Browser Care which allows people to keep everything under control with a minimum number of screens and simple presets (basic, complete, custom).
I hope you love Browser Care as much as I do – and if you haven’t had the possibility to try it yet – you can download a copy from the Mac App Store for just $2.99.
