Xslimmer is an application for Apple's Mac OS X developed by LateNiteSoft. The software has been discontinued by its developers.
Xslimmer reduces the amount of space on your hard drive your programs require once installed, eliminating all the files that are unnecessary for it to work. It is an excellent solution to obtain more space on small hard drives, or those that have vast amounts of programs installed on them.
The software is a utility to tweak universal binaries by stripping the binary of either its PowerPC or Intel code (depending on the system architecture used). This recovers hard disk space. Purportedly, the recovered space is significant. For example, according to the developers Google Earth 4 shrinks from 101 MB to 52.8 MB (a 47% reduction).
The developer's stated goal of Xslimmer is to achieve size reduction without compromising functionality.
