Cookie's Revenge

>From the README:

Many web sites want to save "cookies" on your hard drive.

Many people don't like the idea of web sites using their hard drive to
save information. There are many ways to defeat cookies, including other
AppleScripts that delete the cookie file or sometimes just selected
entries from the file. But where's the fun in that?

Cookie's Revenge opens your cookie file and replaces the cookie data
with subtly bogus information. Superficially it will look like all data
is intact, but the information has been scrambled and rendered useless.
Sites will think that they're tracking you when in fact they're only
tracking random data.

Currently Cookie's Revenge works only with Netscape Navigator. It
should work with any version of Navigator. An Internet Explorer version
may be forthcoming, if I ever get around to installing the program.

This AppleScript is free. It can be found at
