Ccleaner is a very well known product, been around for MANY years
however In July 2017 the company was acquired by Avast,
In September 2017, CCleaner was compromised by hackers

I still have the old version installed (before it sold out to avast) but I will never update it.
I can't recommend it as a useful program anymore.

I've read elsewhere that this Chromium based browser is quite questionable as Avast has not been kind to the formerly nice CCleaner utility with spyware/security problems. It supposedly is similar to the Avast Secure browser though I've never tried either of them, I'd trust Chrome over anything Avast touches.

Last 'safe' version of CCleaner before Avast took over is 5.32.6129 which I still use on a number of systems.
