AppCleaner: easily uninstall mac programs

As you know each Mac OS X program is provided as a single file with the .app extension. These special files are packages, containing all the executables and libraries needed, so – in theory – to remove an application you only need to trash the program package (.app file).
The only caveat is that each software usually writes configuration files that remain if you just trash the package, while AppCleaner, a free software, allows to easily remove dependancies.
