    Could someone recommend a very good eraser for Macs that not only erases your tracks, but will overwrite deleted files so that they cannot be recovered? I was told that there are several with settings that even bypass the Department of Defenses standards for destroying information (Gutzman?). Thanks for your help.

    Disk Utility has an option for 30-pass erasure using the Gutmann algorithm...but that's for erasing your entire disk, not simply your browser history.

    I think that Tech Tool Pro gives you an option to securely wipe free space.
