    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.

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

    It's not for the system, but for the browser...

    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.
