I was thinking of making "brave" my default web browser instead of chrome. as it said to be a great browser to stop ads. Insets of using ad blocker, I thought to switch to brave for this advantage.But, I think I have to think again...

Thanks for finding that.

Do people really believe such statements as that from Brave?
How can one  "accidentally" write such code?

Fool me once, your fault, fool me twice, my fault.

The CCleaner SLIM version is always released a bit after any new version; when it is it will be HERE :-)

Pssssst: ... It isn't really a cloud. Its a bunch of big, giant servers.
