Self-Destructing Cookies for Firefox 0.4.6
Delete a site's cookies when you close its tab

Self-Destructing Cookies is an easy-to-use cookie manager for Firefox.

Install the add-on and it takes immediate effect. Tracking cookies are removed immediately, based on their behaviour (no bulky blacklist required). And a site's regular cookies - and its LocalStorage data - are automatically deleted just as soon as you close its tab.

The add-on also deletes cookies after they've been unused for a specified period of time (10 seconds by default), so you have some protection even if you leave a tab open.

Too drastic? You can whitelist a site, which means Self-Destructing Cookies will leave it alone. Or you can have a site's cookies preserved until you close Firefox, so they'll be available for the current session only.

Useful settings include an option to clear your browser cache when the system has been idle for a specified number of minutes (this is disabled by default).

Self-Destructing Cookies also has an optional Undelete feature to restore anything it's removed. This can help if you find the add-on has broken a site, but has to be used with care, as it might allow other users of your system to log back into sites where you've logged out. (Again, this is disabled by default.)

Version 0.4.7:
    - Australis-native GUI on recent desktops builds
    - work around a bug in Firefox 36 that would cause cookies to be removed prematurely


A comprehensive cookie manager, highly configurable but also very easy to use.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.6

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

Version 2.12.6 brings:

• Whatsapp web - send and receive messages from your computer browser!
