    What folders should I be purging if I'm going to be giving my Mac away? I know I should delete my old User folder and create a new blank one, but besides there, is there anywhere else on the hard drive that stores any of my web browsing history (like cached images, passwords, etc)?

    I remember reading somewhere once about deleting a Macromedia folder, but I don't know if that relates to security.

    I'm giving my Mac to a family member (who prides himself as a "hacker") and I don't want them to be able to be able to retrieve any personal information or usage history about me.
