Install Profile Cleaner in Ubuntu & Debian

Profile Cleaner is a piece of application that is used to reduce the size of browser profiles by using sqlite3’s vacuum and reindex functions to organizing their sqlite databases.

  • Aurora
  • Chromium (stable, beta, and dev)
  • Conkeror
  • Firefox (stable, beta, and aurora)
  • Google-chrome (stable, beta, and dev)
  • Heftig’s version of Aurora
