SecureMac has launched the latest version of PrivacyScan in the Mac App Store. PrivacyScan is a utility that has been designed to remove bits of personal information that are left behind while browsing the internet. Version 1.2 includes expanded privacy cleaning support for Internet and desktop apps including flash cookies for the Google Chrome browser, SeaMonkey's auto-complete typed history, and QuickTime caches and history files. Additionally, updates have also been made to the user interface and a variety of bugs have been resolved. PrivacyScan can be purchased through the Utilities section in the Mac App Store for $15.



OCRKit reaches v2.0, brings speed and stability improvements An updated version of OCRKit that offers up to 8-times higher speed conversions has been released by ExactCode. OCRKit has been designed to quickly convert PDFs or image graphics into searchable PDF files through the use of OCR technology. Beyond improved conversion seeds, v2.0 also both improves text recognition accuracy and stability. Other changes include updated auto rotation and de-skew features, as well as new compression techniques to ensure coloured documents are reduced to the minimum size possible.
