What is everyones favorite cookie manager? Mine is Cookiewall so far.
Hi Notageek! I'm still using the tried and true Internet Sweeper v1.8.1. Works fine and I have backup copies in case it gets wasted. I can also recommend Adshield and WebWasher for which I have links. Do you have a link for CookieWall?
CookieWall is from AnalogX, that has very nice utilities:
See also their other pages for other apps.
I use CookieWall as my primary cookie-manager.
Besides that I use: IEClean, WindowWasher (both also very nice and important on my system) and Ontrack Internet CleanUp 2.
I used to run Cookie Pal, which I liked a lot.
On upgrading to IE 6.0 I decided to give the Privacy tab a go, though.
I disabled CP, which turned out to increase my System Resources more than I expected (this is on Win98 SE), and configured the Privacy settings to overide automatic cookie handling, to block third party cookies, and to prompt for first party cookies.
This turns out to work like a dream: it works just like a cookie manager, and no cookies gets through unless I want them to.
And it's always nice to be able to eliminate one more program from starting up and eating up resources.
IMHO it's always preferable to let Windows handle things, at least if it can, than to install a third party app thatdoes almost exactly the same thing.
hi if ya goin to use the cookei controls in ie ya might wanna go and take a look at this it mabe of intrest to you
its a lil file that as far as i can make out fine tunes ya ie 6 cookie setings
I have used CookiePal since 1998. Good schtick
AnalogX does great stuff BUT...
CookieWall is for IE only.
Me like Opera 6.05 [ver 7 coming soon ]
Cookie Wall. Better to accept the cookie, then nuke it a split second later.
I use the one paul thought me lol no cookies lol
hi..... umm cookie cooker looks cool, Cookie Cooker. But again, like Mr. Blaze said no cookies is a good practice, and just accepting when need to log on to accounts.
Cookies/Ads/Pop-ups/ and a few more nice little features. I only three cookies in may browser cache. Those are the ones i allow.
I have tried tweaking IE's cookie settings and but i hate playing with Trusted and Restricted Sites settings. I dislike the prompts to allow or disallow cookies. Nothing more anoying than application popping up prompts all the time.
One more vote for Cookie Pal
It does exactly what I want it to do, in more then one browser.
My fave: Cookies Manager ........select which cookies you want to keep and which cookies you want to delete.
I totally agree with Pieter, so here is another vote for Cookie Pal. It does everything thing I need and as Pieter mentions, works with numerous browsers.
http://www.kburra.com/cpal.html is the link if anyone wants to check it out....
i did use adsubtract free but it caused a problem with sb 4.75 so i dumped it but that did what i needed blocked all cookies pluss loads of other garbages except what i said was ok like if i needed to log in to hot mail windows update of online banking other than them 3 i blocekd everything eles
anyone know of a small resuarse lite app that will let me do what i could do with adsubtract ?
Tony K amd MrBlase are on the money. Cookie Managers are virtually useless these days. Sure they help with SOME cookies but not ALL cookies. Best bet is to just never accept cookies. Cookies are NOT needed.....any website that tells you that cookies MUST be enabled imo are highly suspect
One of the main reasons I like this forum and visit here is because it does not demand the use of stored cookies. A person is given time to visit and meet people an given the choice to register. ALL security forums should be so kind as to give visitors that sort of respect

Munching cookies here with Opera
works with Opera, Netscape, Ie, munches also ICQ cookies
I suggest to take a look at this site too
Mozilla 1.2 and Phoenix 0.5 do a great job of managing my cookies. I guess kind of like the IE 6.0 privacy tab.
I'll second that. Although the other member who lamented the fact that cookie Wall is only for IE made a good point as well. I've used Cookie Wall since back when I ran 98SE and use it with my current W2K OS. I also use AdShield and even though I'd love to get the f*ck away from MS as much as possible, I have not yet found a better combination than IE 5.5 and AdShield and Cookie Wall. It took me a while to appreciate the subtlety of the "Monitor/Prompt/Accept/Nuke" capacity of Cookie Wall, but now I laugh when I see even Mozilla's cookie configuration compared to Cookie Wall's. Also, I tried some other programs but none of them had the low resource use that I've found with C.W. Again, just my two cents; your mileage may vary.
