All virtues of Cookie app have been restored !!
Under OS X Yosemite I loved the Cookie app, and put a lot of work and finetuning into my favorites and the whitelist. It worked flawlessly, and I was really impressed !
**Enter OS X El Capitan **... and suddenly the Cookie app didn't work any more. The next upgrade of the Cookie app didn't help - it simply wouldn't remove any non-favorite cookies from Safari. I am sure that Apple's decision to sandbox Safari was based on good arguments - but certainly not good to the Cookie app. It was depressing. Now I had to manually remove the cookies from Safari, not a good solution, because there are also a lot of useful cookies, who make life easier - and they are removed too, when you remove all cookies from Safari ( I have found it too time-consuming to manually try to separate the good cookies from the bad ones and only remove all the non-wanted cookies from Safari, so I have mostly just pressed the delete-button and removed ALL cookies, both the good and the bad ones ... )
Now i've installed Cookie 4.5.4 - and to my great joy I have found, that **it works really good ! **
Well, Cookie 4.5.4 only removes the non-favorite cookies from Safari, when I quit the browser - it will not make any live removal every 30 minutes (if I have chosen this in the preferences) from Safari when it is running, even if I have selected this in the preferences. Strange. But I can live with this - because the really important thing is, that all non-favorite cookies are wiped out of Safari, when I quit the browser - and all the favorite cookies are retained. BRAVO !!
I would very much appreciate some kind of advice on what to choose in the preferences:
https://sweetpproductions.com/support/images/smilies/heart.gif Should you choose "Always choose browser extensions as favorites" - or not ?
https://sweetpproductions.com/support/images/smilies/shy.gif Should you choose to remove Favicons, webpage previews, form values and downloads - or not ?
https://sweetpproductions.com/support/images/smilies/exclamation.gif Should you remove unwanted data at browser quit - or at login ??
https://sweetpproductions.com/support/images/smilies/heart.gif Is it smart to remove non-favorites every - let's say - 30 minutes, while the browser is running - or not at all ?? Google is not happy with removal of their cookies ...
The answer to these question will make it possible to a layperson like me to fully take command over the wonderful Cookie app. I therefor propose, that you add this advice into the new Cookie version 5 app.
