CookieSpy gives you the ability to see all the cookies stored in your Web browser and allows you to keep cookies from sites you trust and delete cookies from sites you don't trust. While this app is good at what it does -- viewing and deleting cookies -- it does not offer any other features.
Straightforward: CookieSpy automatically detects all the Web browsers installed on your computer and displays each browser as a tab. Under each tab you'll find a list of cookies active in that particular browser, with additional details visible, such as the Web address where each cookie originated and the dates that the cookies expire.
Speedy: It took us only around five seconds to clear all cookies with the "delete all" feature. If you use multiple browsers, you'll love this app's speed.
Rudimentary interface and features: While easy to use, the app's basic interface also reflects a lack of features. All you can do is view and delete cookies. We would like to see some additional features, like the ability to permanently block a site from storing cookies in your browser.
CookieSpy turns out to be an effective app for viewing and deleting cookies, but nothing more. Most Web browsers already allow you to remove cookies, but they don't provide a list of cookies or let you delete some cookies and keep others the way this app does. If you do a lot of Web surfing, you may find it useful.
While surfing the Internet web sites your browser saves bits of information about your experience on the site (known as HTTP cookies, internet cookies, web cookies or simply cookies). They are your search history, some preferences, logins, and passwords. Information about data that web sites save locally in cookies may be important for you security. CookieSpy is a free utility application that displays HTTP cookies stored on your computer by all popular web browsers. It supports all major web browsers such as Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Google Chrome Canary, Chromium, Safari, Opera, SeaMokey, Pale Moon, Comodo Dragon, Maxton and portable browsers. Cookies are displayed in a table view. You can easily sort and filter the cookie list, edit and delete cookies.
