the Ultimate Cookie Manager
We had a good run....
But fear not!
Cookie development IS full steam ahead! and supports all the popoular browsers.
- For tracking cookie identification and removal (and multibrowser support), take a look at Cookie
- Safari Cookies requires SIMBL, which is conveniently included in the installer - and will be installed if it is not already
- There are known compatibility issues with SafariStand, and Saft. You may need to uninstall these first, before installing Safari Cookies.
