Caution: It doesn't recognize encrypted sites (https) and will delete their cookies regardless if they are in your bookmarks or history. Sadly, this really cripples the app... Too bad.

Good idea but the app doesn't work properly. If I take a closer watch to the cookies I can see a lot that are not in the history or in the bookmarks. Also a lot I really don't want on my computer. To bad and not the money worth. And one thing more: Why should I want to keep the cookies in the history? By searching something trough all the garbage you grab and the computer even keeps that?

At least the developer could give a button to switch "keep history" off. But anyway first work on that the app works properly.


Well, I took a closer watch too and all the cookies Jar did not erase belong to history or bookmarks on Safari. It works fine for me.


Jar continues to work for me, although it sometimes appears to work only when I open the Jar pref pane in System Prefs.

I just installed Jar for the first time today. As soon as it was installed a dialog sheet told me that it's trial period had expired. I just installed it today, how could it expire today?

I like this. So much so that I've uninstalled Safari Cookies, and will be buying a licence for Jar.

My first reaction when reading the description was that it didn't give me enough control over my cookies, the way other cookie managers do. Then I stopped and thought about how I use Safari Cookies. After installing it, I took the (not inconsiderable) time to go through all the cookies on my Mac and flag those which I wanted to keep, before removing the rest. Since then, I haven't re-reviewed my selected favorites, as it's too tedious, and because it must be done manually, I was only cleaning out unwanted cookies every month or so.

In comparison, Jar does it all automatically. I have Safari set to remove items from my history after a month, so Jar will nuke the cookies sooner than I would have using Safari Cookies. If a site remains in my history, or I've bookmarked it, then it automatically becomes a favorite, saving me effort of flagging it as such. All in all, Jar is a simple and effective way to manage cookies.

The only improvement I'd like to see is support for other browsers. I use Camino occasionally when Safari chokes on a website (like MU Promo, of all things), and it would be nice to know that my Camino cookies are being nuked, too.
