By now, you've probably heard about cookies -- those little text files that are stored on your computer whenever you visit particular websites. Fairly innocuous, these cookies do little more than retain your site preferences, saved items in your shopping cart, and a few other minor bits of data, all wrapped up in a file that's only about 1 kilobyte in size. These cookies are harmless, and you could always opt to delete them if you wanted.

But while you weren't looking, the internet came up with different types of cookies, and today we have Super Mega Flash Cookies, which are advanced versions that track even more information - in fact, a Flash cookie can store up to 5Mb of information, and all of your tracking information is shared between all of your browsers. Information that includes your browser type, your browsing history, purchasing habits, language, and a whole bunch of data you'd probably prefer not to share with the world. Even worse, a new technology, the Evercookie, combines all of these factors into an extremely persistent cookie that simply cannot be deleted by normal means!

MAXA Cookie Manager is specifically designed to guard your privacy, with the ability to present you with a summary of all of the cookies that reside on your computer! With MAXA Cookie Manager, you'll be able to decide which cookies are safe, and which are dangerous and should be removed - in fact, you can blacklist entire domains to ensure that all cookies from a particular website are blocked. You can also use MAXA Cookie Manager to automatically delete cookies as soon as they appear on your computer, and use the program to manage a whitelist of approved cookies that you need to work with the sites that you use most often.

MAXA Cookie Manager also has the capability of recognizing the existence of "web bugs". Web bugs are cookies that are solely placed to identify and track the user's way through the internet, without use to the user itself. I don't know about you, but if somebody's tracking my whereabouts on the internet, I'd sure like to know it!

With support for all of the major internet browsers and browser-independent cookie technologies, MAXA Cookie Manager represents your solid line of defense against malicious data-mining Super Cookies!

Not convinced? Take the MAXA Tools privacy test and see exactly how much of your personal information can be derived, linked, and combined by anyone with an internet connection and the know-how!

Amit Hi,

1) Can this be made to work with portable browsers too - portable firefox / chrome and maybe opera too ? By any way.

2) How much more effective or different is it from ccleaner and similar freeware - there are so much in the field ?

Jens Müller 1) Yes portable browsers are supported, however you need to point MAXA Cookie Manager to the profile folder of the portable browser in order to include it, as it can be located anywhere. This needs to be done only once in the wizard.

2) Next to a delete all approach, MAXA Cookie Manager allows you to specify rules according to which cookies are automatically deleted without manual interaction. Next to providing a black list for blocking cookies, a white list for keeping cookies of sites you trust, you can set auto deletion rules in the settings, depending on cookie age, estimated threat, and personal preferences.
MAXA Cookie Manager can recognize and delete all kinds of cookie technologies.

SoftCollector Dear Jens,

How long before the new version comes out?

Kind Regards,

Jens Müller There is no schedule for a new version yet. It often depends whether browsers change.

SoftCollector Dear Jens,

I like MCM, but it seems to mess with my installation of Cyrilla Correct 10, and the latter is essential to me, as is a superior spell checker for Windows. Can you, please, look into it and let me know if the two titles can be made compatible at your end? I am using Windows XP Pro SP3.

Here is what happens: after the installation of Maxa Windows tries to immediately re-install Cyrilla, although it is already installed, the famous "The feature you are trying to use is on network resource that is unavailable." window comes up and this happens again and again, on each restart.

Kind Regards,

Bruno Verschraegen Why is Maxa Tools itself installing a Flash Cookie that never expires on my pc? What happens/changes if I delete it?

Jens Müller Dear Bruno,
the flash cookie you are talking about is not placed by MAXA Cookie Manager but by a part of our website (the privacy test, only for giving an example of how flash cookies work. You can freely delete the cookie again and confirm this on the privacy test.

Jens Müller Hello SoftCollector,
I'm sorry but I cannot see any connection between MAXA Cookie Manager and Cyrilla Correct 10. The message you are referring to reminds me of Windows Installer. We do not use Windows Installer.

I think Jens is right. I've seen the issue you describe with various other software titles at different times and it's more of an OS / app installation issue. In your case, something is not quite right with the Cyrilla installation. I recommend you uninstall both Cyrilla and MCM, reboot your machine, re-install Cyrilla, reboot, and then re-install MCM.

Thanks for clarifying :-) I did run the privacy test indeed.
