Not really sure what to think of this..Let's start with the good part:

It's sweet to the general eye, which obviously is important for software nowadays.

However, the app's functionality is the same as Safari's - it's a very basic cookie manager with no extras, not worth $8.95 unfortunately as Safari does this for free.

Very nicely done! I like that all domains are listed only once, and all different cookies for that domain are listed in the second column, that cleans up the clutter.
However, there are several areas for improvement:

1) Add preferences not to show warnings when I delete multiple cookies. I really don't care... If I press Delete, I want to delete them, without additional confirmation.
2) Undo even for multiple deleted cookies: if you could store all deleted cookies as a "playlist" which should be executed upon program exit, you could offer undo for any deleted cookie as long as the program has not been closed.
3) If you could add internal database (just a plist file actually) of the all existing cookies, you could offer easy way to track newly added cookies by adding color label to all those cookies which did not exist when the program was opened last time...

I liked using this to view and manage _all_ my cookies that I have in NNW and Safari. And its search and grouping is helpful for finding cookies of interest.

What's wrong with the cookie-manager within Safari? There's nothing extra this program brings, although it looks nice.

If you want people to pay for this, you have to bring more features, for example the possibility of keeping cookies you always use en delete all others with just one click.

Indeed, this is useless. Instead, Cocoa Cookies is good stuff and free!

Hard to justify paying $8.95 for this when you can buy PithHelmet for $10 and use its cookie editor.
