Chromium vs. Chrome


By-Tor

Recommended Posts

I was happy to see that CCleaner was updated for use with Chrome. I run the (sometimes) hourly builds of Chromium and thought that would show up the same as Chrome. Unfortunately, it doesn't. Would it be possible to include support for Chromium as well?

As Chromium is not a regularly used program (unlike the widely used Chrome Browser) you'll want to create an entry for Chromium in your Winapp2.ini

ADVICE FOR USING CCleaner'S REGISTRY INTEGRITY SECTION

DON'T JUST CLEAN EVERYTHING THAT'S CHECKED OFF.

Do your Registry Cleaning in small bits (at the very least Check-mark by Check-mark)

ALWAYS BACKUP THE ENTRY, YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT YOU'LL BREAK IF YOU DON'T.

Thanks, I will check into it. I just figured the settings would be the same for both, but, apparently not. I'm not exactly sure which files I should be deleting. If someone would be so kind as to show the default entries for Chrome in CCleaner, I could modify them for Chromium.

They are virtually identical. All CCleaner developers would have to do is change "Chrome" to "Chromium" in their cleaning algorithm. I have inspected the SQLite database files and the way Chrome saves is virtually identical to Chromium. The cynic in me wants to brush CCleaner off the same way they brush a very simple request off such as this.
