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 0.4.10 (Changelog):
- restore compatiblity with Firefox 47
- SDC is now built using JPM

Verdict:

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

Spektrel Art 1.0.0

Free Full Commercial Software

Spektrel Art is a stand-alone program and Photoshop plugin which transforms digital photos into "magical art that glimmers and gleams with intersecting lines of tapered light".

What does that mean? Essentially it applies a configurable mix of effects, enhancing edges, smoothing backgrounds and emphasizing colours. Take a look at the thumbnail for one example, and the official product page has more.

Spektral Art works much like any similar tool. Open an image, click one of the thumbnails to apply a particular preset, or click a few buttons and drag some sliders to fine-tune the results.

There's surprising scope for variation, too. For example, just switching from the "Light" to "Dark" theme can transform a bright and friendly image into something dark and sinister, at least in some cases (results vary depending on the source image).

Please note, the demo version doesn't allow images to be saved.

SPECIAL OFFER: as we write, the developer is offering Spektral Art for free. The offer expires August 29th. Please note that you must provide your name, address and phone number to receive your free license.
