Description

System optimizer apps are quite the thing on platforms such as Windows and Android. Their usefulness, however, is debatable considering how notorious they are when it comes to using system resources. Stacer was created to better optimize your Linux PC in the sense that it packs quite the list of features you’d normally expect from an optimizer and more to give your system a refresh whenever you feel the need. The functionalities Stacer packs include real-time system resource monitor, the ability to clear app caches, start-up monitor, ability to start/stop system services, and even uninstall applications.

This app basically packs the features of Bleachbit and System monitor in one package with a much simpler user interface for a more fluid experience with the added advantage of being light on system resources considering that it was built using the Electron framework and yes, it’s open-source. While the developer of the app claims it was built specifically for Ubuntu , you should be able to run it just fine on just about any other Debian-based* platform.
