wp_head() cleaner

Description

WordPress adds all kinds of <meta>-tags to the <head> section of your site.
Some of these tags are quite good and have real uses, others make sense for some sites and others doesn’t.
Some tags are even considered a security risk, since they tell the world which version of WordPress you’re currently running.

This plugin allows you to remove all of the <meta>-tags that WordPress outputs by default.
You decide on a tag-by-tag basis which tags to remove and which to keep. Nothing’s enforced, you’re 100% in charge.
