Extremely Valuable Add-on Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I've been a huge fan of Cookie Culler because it allows you to selectively make individual cookies permanent and delete all the others when you close your browser. This is VERY powerful. CookieKeeper seems to be a successor, and it does the same thing but better. It even imports permanent cookies from Cookie Culler. And you can delete non-permanent cookies anytime, another powerful feature that allows you to stop some monitoring by websites without closing your browser. Try that at NYT.com, for example.
It gets five stars, but it could be better. I"d like to see sites with permanent cookies listed separately from sites without any permanent cookies. And at least one permanent cookie imported from Cookie Culler didn't work right for some reason, but it was easily fixed. I'd also like an option for a menu item on the tool bar like Cookie Culler.
Oddly, it is hard to find this add-on at the Mozilla site. Searching by name doesn't bring it up on the first screen. Just keep scrolling until you find it.
Thank you for your comments
I have implemented for the next CookieKeeper version:
- Add a menuitem under the tools menu to show the main CookieKeeper window
- Show quickly all cookies/only protected cookies/only unprotected cookies (by replacing the top label by a button menu item)
Hope theses two evolutions will match your requests. I will wait a little more to publish a new version, I may implement others evolutions, if I feel to do so ;-)
For the bug with the cookieculler import, I'm sorry, but without more informations, I can't do anything.
Question: I didn't really understand what you mean by "another powerful feature that allows you to stop some monitoring by websites without closing your browser. Try that at NYT.com, for example." ?
Can you explain more ?
