New Edge Chromium

Recommended Posts

Microsoft's new Edge Chromium is officially out.  Current CCleaner 5.63.7540 ignores it as expected but it can be cleaned from within the browser.  Time for a new version of CCleaner.

It has been a while since an update to CCleaner,  but expect a new CCleaner version once the devs have checked out that the official Edge Chrome has not made any sudden changes from the beta version of Edge Chrome.

Probably in the next week, unless Edge Chrome has done something unexpected?

Edge Chromium will be updated continually via it's own updater & not by Windows Update in line with Chromium updates, as Chrome, Opera, Vivaldi etc is also - Do the Devs know about the release of Edge Chromium though? 😉

I know, I meant to say that the next version of CCleaner for Windows , will definitely support Chromium Edge.

As New Edge is the biggest shake-up in browsers for many years, it's been in Beta for a long time (and for a while was supported by a CCleaner beta)  & little has changed in the main history files etc that I can see, it's pretty obvious either there are no devs? Or they don't care? Who knows, no way of knowing is there? A company has provided New Edge cleaning in a piece of software, actually two of them so far - As I see it CCleaner has become abandon-ware - No other way of putting it.

While Edge Chromium can be downloaded now for those who want it, Microsoft is going to release it via Windows Update as an automatic update.  I am waiting for it that way and will then assess CCleaner's status, which is up to Avast.  Yes, it would be nice to hear something about a new CCleaner version from an official source, but, we have no control over that.  How long one chooses to wait and see or move on is up to each user.

While some may wait until MS Edge is released via WU from my reading MS haven't decided when? - It's been available as a download & install in exactly the same as Chromium, Chrome, Firefox, Opera, Vivaldi etc with a standard uninstaller & files in Program Files etc as standard practice- Microsoft is the largest or second largest software company there is, so Edge New isn't some niche browser user by a few - I've evaluated it since the beginning to final & though others choose to wait it's not unreasonable to ask as a licenced user if or when New Edge will be supported but It's becoming obvious at least to be that may not be anytime soon.

However New Edge can be cleaned in the same way as Chrome in Privacy, options are clean when required or clean selected items on exit. I would think most users of CCleaner use the overwrite system. The rest of the aspects of CCleaner still work as before, but there are free ad-free programs that do this if New Edge cleaning isn't provided. For me, I'm not using CCleaner again I've not been not very been happy since data sluper Avast bought it, so I wont post on this site again or buy anything Piriform (Avast) again - I'm not here to pull any company down just a personal choice, shame as I used CCleaner from day one - Best wishes Paul
