This is one of those programs we should all have on our Mac. It is a system maintenance and customization software , widely used in the Mac world, and free.
With it, we’ll be able to make small changes to the way the OS X works , providing access to some hidden features of the Finder , the Dock , Safari , even turn on or off the Dashboard … One of the most useful options is optimization, in which the program automatically checks and repairs permissions, improves access to data on the hard drive, rebuilds links and indexes for Spotlight … you can even schedule these tasks to run from time to time. Cleans up caches, histories, error logs…
It can also provide detailed information about the computer where it is installed, as well as small integrated utilities, such as a UNIX ” man ” page reader.
On top of that, the software is in Spanish and of course, it is universal binary. Another program of the style, for many even better than OnyX , is Cocktail. Unfortunately this software is not free, although the price is not bad: From $14.95. Anyway, OnyX is an excellent free alternative for those little tasks that keep our Mac looking like new.
