I am currently trying to update this to work on Leopard, if any devs out there have some spare time, please let me know, because I dont have much time at the moment - but really want to get this working. (Im about 90% finished, but need some help with the NSOutlineView implementation) Thanks in advance

Great concept but simply not compatible with latest Mac OS and Safari. Tried all the suggestions such as using the 1.6a1 version, placing in the main library and resetting permission, but still did not work. My rating is for MacOS 10.5.5 running Safari 3.2.1

ver 1.6a1: 1. Removing non-favorite cookies also removes cookies with no expiration date that belong to websites marked favorite. 2. Doing innocuous things like sorting by website in the SafariPlus window crashes Safari (3.1.2 (4525.22)) My system is a 1st gen MacBook running Tiger (10.4.11) with all Apple Software Updates applied and lots of free RAM.

works with leopard. I tested the cookies feature with Safari 3.1.2 and it works! yeah! you must go to the developers site. download the SafariPlus-1.6a1 version. after you put into the InputManagers folder, you will need to set the privileges to match. I used BatChmod. When I tried to set the privileges in the finder with Get Info and Apply to enclosed items it did not fix the privileges.

What exactly does one set the permissions to? Since this hasn't seen updates in a long time I'd love to use your tip to get it working under the latest Safari (as well as the latest WebKit nightlies) and OS X 10.5.5 but I'm not sure what to set the permissions to or how to use BatChmod.

Abandonware. No updates for over a year, latest version incompatible with Leopard. It's unfortunate, because SafariPlus was the best cookie manager I've ever used; it was simple, unobtrusive, powerful, and its feature set perfectly matched the gaping hole in Safari's functionality. I just upgraded to Leopard but it feels like a horrible downgrade whenever I use Safari. I would gladly pay for a Leopard version of SafariPlus, or anything comparable. What I would really like is for Apple to incorporate SafariPlus's functionality into Safari, since it is the sort of "advanced" feature that every web browser should have.

Have you tried OmniWeb? I switched to OmniWeb from Safari primarily because of its great cookie handling. I agree with you that Apple is missing the boat by not incorporating this feature into Safari.

I'm not certain, but I believe this crashes Safari on any web page with flash (and possibly moving gifs), as it crashes all the time, except on a blank page, or on animesuki. As it does this just as it starts drawing the page and then locks everything up for about a minute while it actually finishes crashing-out, I didn't feel like spending all night troubleshooting it (needless to say I got it to crash about 10 times, before I gave up). This makes it worthless, completely. You can't even really use the cookie part, since cookies are useless if you can't even get to the site to get one. If it eventually ends up working properly it'd be indispensable, and you can't beat free. What I don't understand is that Flash blocking or disabling should have been built into Safari years ago, as should minor cookie management similar to this program. Was Macromedia paying off Apple, or are the Safari developers all a bunch of ƒµ¢kíñq idiots that don't have real-world experience browsing the web? If it weren't for a few sites that require it for what I need (and that's countable on one hand, mind you), I'd remove flash completely from my Mac, treating it just like the old AOL virii that came pre-installed.

Still waiting for the Leopard Update. It seems to me it's "under investigation" for too much time… What are you waiting for??? Sorry for my impatience.

My biggest regret in switching to Leopard is the loss of this utility. If you are running Tiger, don't hesitate to use it. I can't understand why these features aren't part of OSX, and I hope the developer will make this Leopard compatible ASAP!

I can hardly wait for a Leopard-compatible release. I must have it to control cookies. There is no other utility that does the job better.
