More privacy, better browsing.

Cookie 5 has been re-written from the ground-up to support El Capitan. Cookie 5 has everything you loved about Cookie v4 plus some powerful new features. We've removed all the legacy code, so Cookie 5 now only supports OS X 10.11+. For OS X 10.6 - OS X 10.10 please search the Mac App Store for "Cookie".

New in Cookie 5:
- New alternate Simplified View that takes care of all the technical details for you.
- New Combined cookie view displays all cookie/flash/localStorage/Silverlight data in one tab to manage view.
- Individual Cookie favorites. Cookie management is now configurable for individual cookies.
- Individual Flash favorites. Flash Cookie's can now be favorited individually.
- Individual Browser settings. It is now possible to configure different removal options for each browser.
- Better and more intuitive management of Databases/Flash and Silverlight cookies.
- More specific removal options from the Settings tab and menubar.
- New streamlined User Interface designed for El Capitan.
- Full Screen support.
- Sandboxed for your security.

Changed in Cookie 5
- New Preferences window. We've moved the preferences out of the main interface into their own window (where they should be!)
- New Favorites/Tracking definitions Export format. Cookie 5 now uses a standardised JSON format for export/import of settings.
- Blacklist removal. With the addition of individual cookie favorites the blacklist didn't make sense any more so we got rid of it.

Version 5.0
Review by Coolshoes529

Works as advertised with no fuss. - I have been using the previous version for quite some time, and this is a nice update. Just configure what cookies and local sorage items you want to keep and the app automatically removes the rest. I have it set to delete everything not whitelisted when I quit Safari or Chrome. Very responsive developer also. I had an issue issue with the old version when El Capitan first came out, and the devloper responded to my issue within one day and it was on a weekend.

Version 5.0.6
Review by “_M_”

Asks for too broad of access - The latest version 5.0.6 wants access to your entire home folder, which is insane considering all data it needs to control is in few folders. So, I uninstalled the app and will look for one that is less invasive.
