    Cookie Viewer lets you see what cookies are on your computer, when they were created, and when they expire, along with other useful data. With this app in place, you'll never have to wonder what cookies could be lurking on your computer, and you can easily remove any that you choose.

    The interface for this app is not flashy, but it gets the job done. There is also a Help feature that contains a lot of good information and can really give you an idea of how to get the most out of the program. When you're ready to begin a new scan, you'll start at the top of the window by selecting the location you want to search. When the search is complete, the number of cookies found will show up above a list of the cookies. From this list, you can view the details of a particular cookie, or you can delete it. Available details include which server created the cookie, key and key value, when the cookie was created, when the cookie expires, and the total lifetime of the cookie. Some of the cookies you find may even have expired already.

    The information displayed in the app can seem a little technical to a beginning user, but the main features of the program are still accessible to users of all levels. The scans are completed quickly, and an initial scan is run as soon as you open the app.

      "No worky; BEWARE"

      March 27, 2014   |   By crsecon

      Version: Cookie Viewer 3.6

      Pros

      Who knows? Null processing available on my start screen

      Cons

      Requires Location to start. No Locations given to check. Will not allow typing in of hard drive, nor specifics such as yahoo.com, google.com etc. Uninstalling right away.

      Summary

      Vaporware for me.

      "I tried it but..."

      March 26, 2014   |   By safarista

      Version: Cookie Viewer 3.6

      Pros

      None for me, but that doesn't mean the program doesn't work for some people! More about that in cons.

      Cons

      The scan lasted soo darn long I eventually ended the process. This may be good for some people realy interested in hacking through the cookies they got from who knows where. Unfortunately, I was looking for something else. I needed a tool that will actually check if MY own site is still sending cookies via eventual leftower cookie code that I missed during the last cleanup. Namely, I decided to remove cookies from my site as this is the simplest way to comply with (idiotic) EU cookie regulations.
