This version seems to have correct the Entourage problem of 1.04. This is a mimalist cookie program. It is mostly a manual operation to select and manage cookies but what it does it does well. It has few tools other than sorting, to assist you in selecting groups or types of cookies. It does however work with many of the popular Mac browsers, including Safari and IE. It is also inexpensive. Given the price, I feel it should be either donationware or beefed up to make it worth more. In order for me to give this product a higher ranking, it would need more features and tools, prove its stability over time and be priced at $10 or donationware.

WARNING:
If you are running IE and Entourage. Do not under any circumstances use 1.04 BETA with IE. Otherwise you will not be able to use Entourage and may damage your Entourage files and lose your mail. I speak from experience. I have not tested with 1.05 yet.

It only found 4 cookies in my Safari cookie jar where the Safari Preference pane shows over 130. What's up? Until it can find them all so that I can manage them properly, only one star for appearance.

Looks nice.

Doesn't actually find *any* cookies on my machine, in *any* of my browsers, and I *know* they're there.

Needs to be updated for Camino name change (which I suspect may be causing the failure to see Camino's cookies).

Use something else until this gets updated to actually do something.

I'm confused...it says free but on the web site an $8 shareware fee.

Cookie muncher is a cookie manager that deletes all your cookies but the ones that you want to keep. Cookies are little bits of text that store information about you that a Web site can retrieve at a later time. Cookies can be a privacy issue and Cookie Muncher allows you to deal with this privacy issue quickly and easily.

Support for Multiple Browsers - Cookie Muncher supports more browsers than the competition with support for a whopping five browsers. It supports Mozilla, Internet Explorer, Safari, Chimera, and OmniWeb. With support for such a large amount of browsers you can easily switch your browser by saving all the cookies from your original browser right into your new browser. Comparable products are not as flexible as Cookie Muncher. Cookie Muncher is the first, and only cookie manager to have support for Safari, Apple's new high-speed Web browser. With support for five browsers no other cookie manager can come even close!

Delete Cookies at Startup - Rather then double-clicking on the Cookie Muncher icon every time you want to manage or delete your cookies. Cookie Muncher will allow you to delete all the cookies but the ones you specify upon logging into your Mac OS X account. In other words, as you login, Cookie Muncher will delete all the cookies but the ones you want to keep.

Edit and View Cookie Values - Sometimes just the name and domain of the cookie is not enough. Another great feature of Cookie Muncher is the ability to edit the values of any given cookie. When you edit a cookie you can set if the cookie is enabled, secure, and what time it expires. Advanced users may want to change such information as the domain, name, and value of a cookie. For example you can edit a Yahoo mail cookie to change the email address remembered by the browser rather then to go to the Yahoo mail Web site and changing it the hard way.

Search for Cookies - Cookie muncher allows you to search for cookies by their domain. Instead of scrolling through 350 cookies to find the ones you want to keep you can type in part of the domain and it will display all the matches for you. Once your matches are found you can decide what you want to do with them. You can check certain cookies so you can concentrate on the ones you want. When you have selected the cookies you want to deal with you can either delete them or add them to your cookie list.

Cookie Muncher is Smart - When Cookie Muncher reads cookies from your hard drives it checks to see if they are in your cookie list. If a cookie already resides in your cookie list and is identical to the one Cookie Muncher is reading then Cookie Muncher will not add that cookie to the main cookie list giving you one less cookie to deal with.
