An AppleScript to sanitize Safari
Authored by: jeff_lamarche on Nov 14, '05 08:28:03AM
Personally, I would have implemented this as a shell script since there's no Applescript functionality being used, but that's a personal preference thing for sure.

If you're really paranoid, install srm and use it instead of rm in your script or instead of that, you could use Applescript to drag the same files to the trash and do a secure empty.

Just a FYI: srm is already installed in Tiger, and is part of the Darwin source base. Apple's version of srm (1.2.8/Apple, as of 10.4.4) will overwrite a file's resource fork as well as its data fork. You really don't want to replace it with the plain 1.2.8 version from sourceforge, which does not have that capability.
