[prMac.com] Rhos-On-Sea, United Kingdom - Cookie Stumbler is a new app by WriteIt! Studios that allows you to conveniently scan for ad and tracking cookies and remove them with just a single click. Supporting Google Chrome, Firefox, OmniWeb, Chromium, Safari and Flash Cookies, Cookie Stumbler offers an easy, one click way of deleting unwanted cookies from your Mac. Easy selections for keeping cookies set by your bookmarked websites, sites in your Browser History or in the so-called keep list make the selection process a breeze.
It is a perhaps not too well publicized fact that knowing only five selections which you have made on different web sites allows specialized companies to profile you and guess your likes and dislikes quite accurate. Linking this to IP-addresses / user ids can even allocate the individual and send e.g. targeted advertising.
Using regular definition updates and an intelligent heuristic Cookie detection & analysis engine, Cookie Stumbler offers you the best possibilities to ensure that you do not involuntarily give away information about your surfing behavior or even in extreme cases, keystrokes. Cookie Stumbler supports Mac OS X 10.5 or higher and all major web browsers for Mac OSX including the Adobe Flash Plugin and detects & deletes advertising & tracking cookies within seconds.
The scheduler feature enables those who don't want to go through the fine details of the cookies stored on their computer to delete all unwanted cookies automatically in an easy configurable and flexible way without even opening the application.
