Brave Web Browser


Recommended Posts

I have the CCleaner Professional version and just started using Brave as my default browser. It appears the CCleaner does not work with Brave. Is there anything I can do to utilize the CCleaner? I Piriform working on including Brave?

You can add the browser to CCleaner using one of the following methods:

CustomLocation1=CHROME|path_to_user_profile:

Example: CustomLocation1=CHROME|C:\Users\<your user name>\AppData\Local\BraveSoftware\Brave-Browser\User Data\Default

I'm surprised they haven't included that ability to add in a custom location using CCleaner itself, instead of by means outside of the program since the ability to add via CCleaner locations to clean or exclude, etc., has existed for years.

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.

Starting with CCleaner v5.66 added full cleaning support for Brave and Vivaldi browsers. It means you can independently clean browsing history for the browser just like Chrome, FIrefox and others.

Why are you posting this on the CCleaner forum? We already know about it.

Unless of course you were trying to spam your website, in which case it hasn't worked - and don't try it again.

Worried about 'Tracking Files'? Worried about why some files come back after cleaning? See this link:
