Default Cookie Managers

Any thoughts on cookie managers?

I am using the Firefox built-in cookie manager, but there are quite a few add-ons, too.

MSIE cookie control would be even more important, since I know I have far more cookies over there.

I'm using Mozilla as my main browser - its cookie management is functionally sufficient for me, though I'm not overly fond of the management user interface. When using Firefox or Opera for testing, I simply refuse most cookies (always prompt) and if necessary manually clean up afterwards.

For IE I still depend on the shareware Cookie Pal by Kookaburra Software; it's no longer being developed any further (apparently since browsers were released that themselves were able to do cookie management), but I hang on to it because of it's nice set-it-and-forget-it UI, and because it also handles the cookies from apps that use an embedded IE browser object. It handles Netscape 4 cookies as well (but I rarely use that for testing any more).

Now if only Mozilla's cookie manager had a user interface as good as that...

I use Netscape 7.2 and I have my cookies.txt file set to read-only and only turn that off when I know that I want a cookie to be set--for example for my online banking the first time I accessed it--and once the cookie(s) has/have been set, I turn read-only back on. Having done this, I've never had a problem accessing any site.

There are quite a few Firefox cookie related Add-ons, maybe one of those might be better.

I just use Firefoxes built in cookie management, but require a Yes/No for all cookies.

For IE, I just don't run it unless I'm testing my own work (and I never set cookies).
