Cocoa Cookies is a very simple Cocoa app that helps you to search for and delete HTTP cookies stored in the shared Cocoa cookies storage. Including Undo and Redo capabilities! "What is the 'shared Cocoa cookies repository'?" I hear you asking... Well... it's a Cocoa API for storing cookies (NSHTTPCookieStorage class to be exact... but that's not important). A few popular Cocoa apps use it to store their cookies in a common, shared repository:
  • Safari
  • Dashboard
  • NetNewsWire
  • Shiira

Those are the ones I know of... there may be more.

The easiest way to describe Cocoa Cookies is to tell you more...

some problems with Mac OS X Snow Leopard.
It does not retain newly marked Cookies. The are not saved or whatever. After a clearing the newly locked items are gone.

Even first restating the App does not help.

So, use with caution!

I used this for so long I forgot. Very handy tool.

only annoying bug:
It shows nothing when you start up the App. You then have to write something in the search bar and then erase it - and voila it shows all the cookies.

This still works with Mac OS X 10.6.8 Snow Leopard on a Mac Pro.

Very handy application for viewing and modifying cookies. Particularly valuable now that Safari 6 no longer will show them to you.

This one really really helped me out in an emergency. It seems to be the only thing that does what it does, and it works perfectly. Much much thanks to the developer for giving away such a fine and helpful tool!

Does not appear to work with Safari 5 any more. Just shows me a blank tableview.

Try checking-unchecking-checking the REG EX button. Then, I believe, your cookies list will show and you can modify them as you please. Best regards.

This doesn't appear to save the locked cookies list when the program is closed. So if you restart the computer, you would have to reselect all the cookies you don't want deleted before doing "Remove All", which makes it less useful for me.

I wonder if this could be made into a Safari Extension to allow automated periodic deleting and so on?

I don't find that to be the case at all. Locked cookies are saved during Restarts. Perhaps delete your prefs file and try again.

My only frustration is, Who is going to update this app? How does anyone live without it?


why not try Safari Cookies:


Why not a safari extension? Sadly, for some of us out here, we can't use Leopard, and that is a prerequisite for a version of Safari that handles extensions...


Well, extension or not, the issues may be due to the 4-5 years since the last updat.

How did I miss this for all these years? Perfect little application that cleans up the cookie mess and lets you protect cookies from domains you want to keep. Works with cookies from Safari 4 beta as well as prior versions.

Oh, I like this! One of the few things I've been missing from my Windows days is a good cookie manager. Cocoa Cookies is it! It does everything I want (sorts by domain, displays cookie info and allows me to protect favourite cookies), and nothing that I don't want. Highly recommended!
