    Opera is so great browser :)
    I made cookie rules simple: I allow cookies only when necessary; I add a new domain if I am not able to gain access where I need to, 5 of them so far :)

    be secure ^Ari^

    hey FluxGFX,

    I don't use opera, but i think internet sweeper is able to clean out the cookies and cache for opera.... and maybe u might wana use it for clearing other stuff as temp...internet explorer...etc.. You might wana take a look at that program.

    When I used Opera,Supercleaner worked really good for clearing the temp history files.
    There may be many cleaning programs that would work for clearing Opera's history.
    I think Internet Sweeper is still freeware?
    The other programs that I checked out were shareware.

    Take a look at these pages for info on Opera's cookie handling.
    You'll need to download a 3rd party tool from http://www.westelcom.com/users/jsegur/ in order to manage your existing cookies. Quite an oversight by a browser that's supposedly so secure.
