i can tell you what i use it for.
I use the automation process. It runs the OSX built-in maintenence stuff (repair paritions, that sort of stuff) Cleans all your caches out, like internet, kernel (which i dont get)

basically what it does for me is just gives me a manual way of running the built-in OSX functions that keep things tidy. Since i dont leave my computer on overnight (which is when they are auto run), it gives me a way to clean things up myself.

Onyx is a maintenance and customization utility for Mac OS X, it centralizes maintenance tasks into one easy to use interface. It also unlocks some of the hidden customization options that Mac OS X provides.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
