"ok but not worth the money"

November 10, 2006  |  By artherstrasse

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Comments are for Safari only as the cookie management tools in OmniWeb and Firefox are far superior to Cookie Dog.

This is a separate app and will protect cookies but will not delete unprotected cookies unless you open Cookie Dog and go through its routine.

Not sure what its value is as I can do the same in Safari in less time.

Appears very IE centric so maybe there's a use for it in IE.

"Cannot see my Camino cookies"

If Camino is your main browser this dog won't hunt. Multiple emails to developer have gone unanswered. OTOH-for supported browsers this is a fine product

"Crash"

November 10, 2005  |  By weirdkid

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Application crashes as soon as I tell it to check out my Safari cookies. Had to force quit. Seems to work for Mozilla and Firefox, but it can't find the cookies for the other browsers. Yes, I have cookies in all of them. Too bad.

"Best of it's kind"

March 21, 2005  |  By Xeater

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I've tried all of three cookie managers for OS X, and Cookie Dog is by far the best, but that isn't saying much. It's GUI is awful, it looks like a Windows app has infiltrated my system. Or maybe just an OS 9 app ;) Despite the abysmal interface, the program seems to do what it advertises, although I'm left wondering if it's really necessary. I've been using a separate browser for visiting suspect sites (primarily corporate sites), and set it to ask before accepting cookies. When done with the icky browsing I just delete that browser's cookies. For the rest of my browsing I use Safari.

The best solution would be a cookie manager in Safari, but it seems Apple isn't interested in making their browser feature complete. I suppose most Mac users wouldn't know what the fsck a cookie is, but why couldn't Apple "hide" the editor in the preferences? Most users don't use the preferences, either.

"Lousy policy for decent product"

February 01, 2004  |  By blistserv

 |  Version: Cookie Dog 2.0

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Yes, 2.0 does what it says it will do. But what other shareware utility offers ZERO upgrade consideration for previous owners. Paid $10 for version one? You get to pay another $10 for version two. Yes, I understand that work has gone into it; work goes into every upgrade, and almost every shareware creator demonstrates consideration to their loyal, previous owners.
I speak as a creator and distributor of shareware and commercial software. I know it is only ten dollars; it is just a crummy policy and bad P.R.

Summary

God it's been a loooong wait. Works with Safari perfectly. Same price as it always was.

Rule of thumb: got a problem with IE and another app? It's IE. Bet on it

"I waited for this version"

January 18, 2004  |  By Ronald P. Regensburg

 |  Version: Cookie Dog 2.0

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Really nice to have Cookie dog now working with all major MacOSX browsers! I used Cookie Dog for years with earlier MacOS versions, but since I started using Safari more and IE less, I really missed Cookie Dog.
And smwweb, the problems with IE preferences are well known, not only in combination with Cookie Dog. It is caused by a peculiarity of IE and other MS applications that keep preferences in memory and only save them to disk when quitting. Do not run IE when Cookie Dog is running and do not run Cookie Dog when IE is running.
