Brave Browser + C-Cleaner???


Recommended Posts

It's on a list to be included in future but I don't think it's a priority.
As far as I understand Brave it does most of it's own cleaning anyway, which is the main point of using it.

However I believe it is included in the community 'winapp2', or you can add it to ccleaner yourself, see this post for how to do that:

If it's a Chromium/Chrome based browser you should be able to use CustomLocation to clean it, but as stated if it already does a good job of cleaning itself then this could cause unforeseen issues, i.e.; you'd have to configure Cookies to Keep, and some addons/extensions might not like the cleaning, etc.

Examples, assuming you configure CCleaner to use INI file for settings instead of the registry, or if you use CCleaner Portable:

CustomLocation1=CHROME|C:\Users\YourProfileName\AppData\Local\SomeChromiumBrowser\Profile
CustomLocation2=CHROME|E:\Apps\SomeChromiumBrowser2\SomeChromiumBrowser2Portable\Profile

Then in CCleaner it would be cleaned in:
Custom Clean > Applications (tab) > Google Chrome

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/promote your website, in which case it hasn't worked - and don't try it again.
