    BleachBit is open source and does a thorough job of deleting various files that could reveal what you've been up to, from cookies to temporary files and other junk. It can't replace CCleaner on Mac, but on Windows and Linux it is arguably better and more trustworthy.

    While still not a perfect alternative, it has many of CCleaner's features and none of its malicious behavior.

    really awesome open source alternative, and also allows you to script the cleaning process through the CLI, which helps when you have to do it a lot.

    It is deduplicator, not cleaner. Alternative to FSlint. Not to CCleaner or BleachBit

    JohnFastman

    Click&Clean is intended for clearing browsing information (e.g. cookies, LSOs) from your Chrome/Chromium/Opera/Vivaldi or Firefox browser. It is configurable, but doesn't delete temporary files from your computer like CCleaner does. You can use both and benefit in different ways.

    It is mainly deduplicator, detects empty folder, bad file names an so on. It does not clean FS from tramporary and other unneeded files. So it is not alternative to any cleaner programm.

    Barely similar. Their feature set is mutually exclusive. One can have both.
