What is Cookie Stumbler for Mac

Cookie Stumbler 2 is here. Rewritten from scratch and featuring a re-engineered heuristics engine that detects up to 6 times as many tracking cookies as its predecessor and that processes cookies up to 40 times faster, Cookie Stumbler 2 still includes all the features that you love, but takes them all a step further to make the best even better.

Features
  • Time Saving - Cookie Stumbler 2 quickly analyses your Mac's cookies and lets you know how many tracking cookies it has found - a task that would have taken a lot of time when going through a large amount of cookies by yourself. Thanks to Cookie Stumbler's unmatched heuristics engine, you'll get a reliable, up-to-date tracking report within just a few moments, regardless of the number of cookies stored on your Mac.
  • Private Browsing - The all-new Private Browsing mode removes tracking cookies as you browse the web, while allowing useful cookies to be stored on your Mac. This feature requires no special plugins, no special extensions and works with all web browsers that Cookie Stumbler supports.
  • Smart Cleaning - Cookie Stumbler 2 introduces "Smart Cleaning". Rather than going through the tedious process of telling Cookie Stumbler your domain preferences one by one, Smart Cleaning allows you to achieve the same effect using a single rule. You choose the criteria and what to do with cookies that match it - Cookie Stumbler will handle the rest.
  • Centralized control over your cookies - Rather than having to manage each Web browsers' cookies separately, Cookie Stumbler 2 consolidates them into one convenient location. And thanks to Cookie Stumbler 2's brand new categorization and search tools, this kind of a task has become simpler than ever.
  • Compatible with major Web browsers - Cookie Stumbler 2 supports all major Web browsers out of the box, which include Safari, Firefox, Chrome, Chromium, Opera, iCab, Camino, Roccat, Adobe Flash Player, and Microsoft Silverlight. Support for additional Web browsers can be achieved using web browser plugins.
  • Maintains your Mac - Cookie Stumbler 2 features various maintenance programs, which ensure that your Web browsers use less hard drive space, are faster, more reliable and safer to use. You can run these programs anytime by yourself or as part of a regular cookie cleaning operation.
  • Keep track on tracking cookies - Advertising companies use cookies to track you. Time to return the favor. Cookie Stumbler 2 features an intuitive statistics system which will provide you with a clear overview of your recent cookie activity. And, using Cookie Stumbler 2's new mapping system, you can even track cookies back.

ABANDONWARE. My impression is that it was an interesting, if intermittent school project. Now it's abandoned.

-> Go get Cookie by SweetP Productions, which is excellent and frequently updated, highly recommended. Its developer is terrific.

Sounds like the end of WriteItStudio, their site is unreachable, and I can't even retrieve my serial number. I did really like the program before, especially its new Mac version. On my PC the design is awfull and it takes a lifetime to uncheck everything in order to remove a cookie. Talking about the Mac version, I have paid for 2years x2 but they did only validate 2 years!!! When I reported the problem, they told me the registration time is correct and that I misunderstood. Actually, I renewed twice using the same MacUpdate discount code when it was on sale on MacUpdate a few years ago.
I do really hope they won't stop their programs though... (I'd change my rating, if the cookie stumbler is not discontinued)... at least they could inform us about what they are planning to do like most of honest developper do!

I noticed that many polyvalent software like CleanMyMac offer a feature to remove cookies... that is probablu the reason why Cookie Stumbler has discontinued.... When we think of the annual registration fees, I feel like I have been cheated ! I don't know if CleanMyMac (also available as CleanMyPc) does recognize every cookies like this software, but as far as I know is that when I used the latter one, there were no cookies detected by Cookie Stumbler....

Cookie Stumbler works in annoying ways to me. After clicking on Sources CS analyses the cookies present on my system and also shows a tick box for each cookie to specify if you'd like to keep it as a favorite or not. But upon clicking clean cookies CS mysteriously ticks boxes that haven't been ticked, hence each time I end up with all kinds of cookies from dreadful companies that I definitely don't want to keep. I have to manually uncheck them and run CS again and again.

This totally defeats the purpose of having a cookie manager such as CS in the first place! I run 10.11.2 with Safari 9.0.2. I'm giving up on CS permanently, why annoy myself every time?

Terrible product and terrible support. This was a fine program until it was "upgraded" and simply doesn't work. No response from support when I was trying to purchase, no response after purchase. Stay AWAY from this terrible program. Don't buy it. Trust the reviewers below.

Has anybody downloaded this, only to find that once the .dmg is mounted, the app inside is 'damaged' and won't run on Yosemite?

Nice progress. It's been great working with the developer, who's been very responsive. He's also integrated a new feature for keeping track of and keeping out new tracking cookies during browsing. Gradually, it's becoming easier to maintain privacy during web browsing, the way it should be.
