I've never heard of it. If you want a tool that's well known and has an excellent reputation that can do cleaning for any major browser I can think of plus Windows itself and other application programs try Piriform's CCleaner, just don't bother with the Registry Cleaner component.
Not sure CCleaner is similar enough to the Chrome Cleaner. Chrome Cleaner can actually remove malicious addons in Chrome. CCleaner only removes temp files, it can't remove browser extensions. Unless something has changed in a recent version.
I don't disagree with you one bit. I was simply going on the name of the thing, never having used it. Based upon further reading it seems like it's a Chrome focused malware, spyware, unwanted toolbar, and PUP removal tool.
My initial impression was that it was more of a cache/cookies/etc. cleaner. I was incorrect.

In a modern society where everyone thinks their opinion deserves to be heard nothing annoys me more than individuals who mistake their personal preferences for fact.
