    Ok, so I saw on Mac Update an application that trims off the PPC code from my applications since I will not need that on my Intel system

    This looks like a good idea, but is it safe to do? What are the odds of it making one of my apps unusable?

    Thanks

    XSlimmer - I've used it for all my apps that it will work on. It works well with no problems

    Are there any others,
    Perhaps freeware?

    Im only 16, and don't have a PayPal account
    :/

    trimmit is freeware, and it can save your more space. However, there is no built-in blacklist...

    XsTrimmerLite seems to work the best. Gets rid of localizations too.

    xstrimmer only runs on PPC, according to MacUpdate...
