cookie parameters. When selecting a parameter from the list an
additional information about its values is displayed, such as when
the cookie was set, from what domain it was set, when it expires.
Options include manual selection of internet cookies
folder location on the hard disk, selection of backup folder
and an option to ask a confirmation prior to erasing cookies.
A built in shredder allows you to wipe cookies
from your PC with a peace in mind so that no other software
would be able to recover data. Three shredding methods are
available: Gutmanns, US DoD 5220.22 M or simply overwriting
with random data and erasing later.
Additional options include viewing cookie data
as plain text in Notepad, and printing the cookies list. There
too can be accessed when right-clicking on the cookie file
name and via "Edit" menu command.
When the program is minimized it appears in the system tray. You may
shred cookies directly from a popup menu, that will appear if you
right click on the icon at the tray.
