Piriform recently announced that it released CCleaner version 5.0 to the public as a Beta. The interesting thing about CCleaner 5.0 Beta is that it comes with a fresh new user interface (UI for short). This is the first time in 10 years that CCleaner’s interface gets redesigned.

“CCleaner v5.0 sees a change with a redesigned, modern interface. The current interface you know and love has remained largely the same since its first release almost 10 years ago, so we decided it was time to give it a fresh new look!” explained Piriform on its official blog.

“Our design team have worked hard to bring CCleaner up-to-date while making sure it still felt like the same tool that our hundreds of millions of users love. We are extremely happy with the result, and we hope you are too!” Piriform continued.

Since a picture is worth a thousand words, here are some screenshots that present the stable CCleaner version 4.19 compared to the new Beta version of CCleaner 5.0.
