Files that contain the .crdownload file extension are associated with the Google Chrome Internet browser. The files with the .crdownload file suffix store the contents of partial file downloads that are being performed with the Chrome Web browser.
The Google Chrome Internet browser was created by Google to compete with the other popular website browsers, such as Firefox and Internet Explorer and was released in 2008.
When the Google Chrome Web browser is downloading a file, the incomplete download will be saved with the .crdownload file extension until the file has completed the download process. Once the download has been completed by the browser, the file will be renamed with the proper file extension.
Unfortunately we have not received enough suggestions for software that can open CRDOWNLOAD files yet.
File.org aims to be the go-to resource for file type- and related software information. We spend countless hours researching various file formats and software that can open, convert, create or otherwise work with those files.
If you have additional information about the CRDOWNLOAD file format or software that uses files with the CRDOWNLOAD suffix, please do get in touch - we would love hearing from you.
