Ubuntu – CCleaner equivalent


I frequently use ccleaner to (cover my tracks), clean up unused data stored on my computer from web traffic and hotfixes on my windows system.

I was wondering if there is a piece of software that does the same thing for ubuntu that ccleaner does for windows?

Please and thank you.
