I don’t ever remember seeing another app on MU get so brutally trashed with so little justification given. If you are going to award a single half-star, you ought to give a damn compelling reason for your evaluation. The problem with sites like this is that they attract trolls, and we seem to have one right here.

Roni, please. Give it up. You keep trying to say negative things about this software, and when each argument fails, you switch to another one.

On another hand, you could try running for office.

Cocoa Cookies - Safari only, doesn't indicate tracking cookies.
Flush - Wipes all Flash Cookies.

People don't work for free.

Sure it indicates the cookies that are being tracked.

You must have some kind of a "special" version then, because I've downloaded both and they do not indicate tracking cookies. Also both are no longer maintained with no updates for over a year. (or in Cocoa Cookies's Case, 6 years).

We maintain our software and regularly write new Cookie definitions to combat the newest threat. If you aren't happy to pay for this kind of software, then don't use it and stick with free alternatives.

Don't be surprised though when'll still see targeted advertising everywhere.

Not an attempt to disparage your hard work and I'm certain for the small additional price you have included features that the two combined apps I mentioned do not have.

When I absolutely need an app (i.e. Adobe Creative Suite) I purchase it.

So far the freeware appears to fill my needs.

Thanks for the replies.

I just clicked on your link on your website...
writeitstudios.com/index.php?express=yes
which should have taken me to the AppStore but I got an error message instead.

You may want to check for bad links on your website. "Integrity" works well and it's freeware.

Ronl,

that link works as expected. The express link toggles a comparison table (Basic vs Standard) on our website if you scroll down the page.

Thanks,

The link on that page that I'm having trouble with is when I hover over... "Cookie Stumbler Basic $6.99" (i.e. the... Cookie Stumbler Basic $ 6.99 1 User License Updated Heuristics Engine Easy to Use Cleans Web Browsers" link)... and then click on it.

It attempts to take me to the App Store but instead I get an error message. This happens both for Safari and Firefox.

Ronl,

you are correct. The link should in fact lead to the download, but we forgot to update it from the Cookie Stumbler Express link. The link has now been updated.

Sorry...but Ghostery does everything Cookie Stumbler does and more for free. Not sure why anyone would pay money for something they can get for free.
