Big GrinActually Foxfire browser has a similiar idea in place.  It has a plugin where you can clear your cookies and other cookie functions like view, delete, add, etc. on a webpage.

Just one of the features is - when you view any webpage and if it's an error on that page it will show it and take you directly to where it is. The line in CSS.  You can view all ID information including images etc. and a slew of other tools.  It is awesome. 

That's a browser feature, not a web site feature.  What was asked is not possible.

    You still can clear cookies with it on any website.

      Hey Janet, it can set up RSS feeds too, but that's not what was asked.

          It's a wonderful tool Todd.  I wish I had learned about it sooner.

              Good tip f4m.

              The Opera web browser has a nice "Delete private data..." menu option that can be used to quickly delete what you want to.  I wish all the browsers has a simple, plain-spoken option like that.

              However, I think many people make the mistake of deleting too much.  It's like those spyware programs that delete every last tracking cookie and report them as "danger!"  Leaving cookies on the computer is probably a better option for most people, unless you share the PC.  Even then using XP or Vista will keep user logins separate, and one user cannot see another user's cookies.

                Yes thats true about cookies i don't delete them every time maybe once a month. Mainly because i haven't figured out how to isolate the sites i visit that use different passwords and logins. When i delete my cookies i have to go through the login screen names and passwords for every site that uses them all over again.

                Since AOL comes with McAfee security center and it's own spy ware i let it run and if it's dangerous it automatically blocks it.

                My next PC will have Vista can't wait. Buying one is still on my wish list.

                  Tenaj glad you liked it. Yea i found it by accident one day you can also access it from the tool bar by clicking settings but that takes a little bit longer.

                  On this PC I'm on AOL and Comcast high speed so any features i can find to speed up things i look for. Aol has a plug-in for broadband and high seed Internet depending on whichever access you tag along with.

                  When i switch to Internet explorer i have all the tool bars for different IP's we use it's kinda neat but mostly my kids use that.
