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

      Most users think CleanMyMac X is a great alternative to CCleaner.
      Not a good alternative, seems like a bait and switch company. Got a really bad feeling with their free trial and deleted immediately.

      OnyX vs CCleaner opinions
      Most users think OnyX is a great alternative to CCleaner.
      wonderwarthog Onyx is basically a GUI tool for all the housekeeping tools that macOS has on the command line. It will allow you to reset/clean up and clear most of the caches and tools that are in macOS, but have no dedicated GUI. In so far it is a "safe" choice, because it doesn't do anything that isn't provided for by the OS itself, it just offers a GUI and all the tools in one place. And for free. What's not to love?

      To compare Onyx with CCleaner is like comparing an apple to a CPU. They are incomparable.

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

      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.
