Cookies are a big problem for users because they can pile up quickly and possibly track your computer activity. Many browsers come with programs to delete these little problems, but Cookie Monster presents itself as a way to quickly and expertly cleanse your hard drive of cookies.
This freeware program is an incredibly simple way to cleanse your computer of the little bits of information that build up and slow down performance. This program has a very simple display that should not take new users much time to master. Depending on your level of interest, you can browse through cookies and select which you want removed from the computer or even search for specific ones. Each cookie tells users its name, value, and where the file is stored, which many will find useful. However, if you simply want to give your cookies a bath, simply click on the humorously titled, "Eat Cookies!" button and they are instantly erased.
Cookie Monster is incredibly simple and functions as promised. There is something here for basic users and ones who seek a little more depth in their programs. If you are unhappy with your browser's method of cookie deletion, Cookie Monster is a fantastic download that will provide everything you need in this department.
From Alberto Martinez Perez:
This is a utility to delete cookies for common browsers. This program detects the cookies files for most common browsers (Internet Explorer, Netscape, Mozilla and Opera) and deletes them with a simple click. Useful for people who cares about his privacy without the need of disable the cookies feature (most popular pages needs it).
This little beauty allows one to keep the cookies one wants in a save file and deletes all the rest. I do a lot of surfing and use this on a daily basis. It takes almost a full second to delete 2,000 cookies. I could not be more pleased and cannot recommend this program more highly. FYI I am using Windows 7, and Chrome. I also used with Vista and it ran perfectly. Cannot vouch for other Windows versions or other browsers, but I would advise you to give it a try, if you know how to use it (and it's simple) and it works for you, you will never regret downloading this jewel.

Version: Cookie Monster 3.47
I really miss this program, I used to use this daily. Unfortunately since upgrading to Firefox 4, it can't be used.
The program no longer works. It senses Firefox 4 is always open and the program only works if FF is closed first. No setting in options can fix this, uninstall and reinstall doesn't help either.
I advised the developer, and can only assume there is a design problem with this program and the way Firefox 4 works that can't be fixed. Looking for another program that will do the same things. The Cookie Monster 1.05 add on to Firefox is mostly unworkable - no resizeable window, no protected cookies, etc., meaning having to slowly go through every single cookie any time its used.
