Greetings, all.


I've selected the "Block cookies from third party/advertisers" in preferences, but I also want to make exceptions for certain sites at my discretion (like you can do on Firefox). Is there any way to do this in Safari? Or is it an all or nothing proposition?


Thanks in advance,

    No, Safari is behind Firefox, Chrome, and others in cookie handling. But you can make exceptions through add-ons. I use one called Safari Cookies which is free and works fine, but I'm thinking about upgrading to Cookie (which you can get in the Mac App Store) because it handles cookies and databases in all browsers, not just Safari.

    It makes no sense that exceptions would not be standard in Safari's cookie settings. Anyone know why it's all or none?... Thanks for the info Network 23.
