Cookie blocker for safari

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have been using firefox for my browsing purposes, but I recently have started experimenting with Safari. There are features of Safari that I like, but I can't seem to find a good plug-in like "cookiesafe" for Safari that allows me to block all cookies except those that I specifically allow. This is the only thing that is preventing me from going Safari full time.

Can anyone in insiderdom offer any tips on how to make Safari do what I want it to do?

Have you tried the Preferences?

Why would someone make a plugin for something that the program already does?

In the preferences I can set Safari to reject all cookies, but there is no setting that I can see to have Safari ask me which cookies to accept and which to reject. I can also set Safari to reject third-party cookies. This is important to me when I surf Digg, for example. It sends me to all sorts of weird sites. I don't need their cookies to follow me around the web.

Ah, I seem to have misunderstood what you wanted. But still, one question remains: why would you care about cookies? Is your hard drive measured in megabytes rather than gigabytes?

Call me paranoid about my privacy!

An update if anyone is interested. Via the Pimp My Safari website, I found a plugin called SafariPlus that does exactly what I need it to. Not quite as nice as the CookieSafe plugin for Firefox, but very useful none the less. I guess I will be trying out Safari more and more as my primary browser.

On another note. Can anyone offer comments on Saft and PithHelmet?
