Cookie Monster is gone forever. I have found that Cookie AutoDelete is a good alternative; however, you need to understand how to use it particularly the white list feature.

"cookie autodelete" is more like "cookie culler" - first is converted from chrome as there exist "vanilla cookie manager" which has same functions.

nice: cookie autodelete supports containers -> "Contextual Identities" (experimental)

Depends on how you use it in particular the Domain Specific Dropdown; I find it provides about 85% of what Cookie Monster did that was of interest to me.

from my view CM had more features than cookie culler or cookie autodelete.
i miss a cookie on/off button like "cs lite mod". (CM could have done this also)

I worked with CM Dev to test on Mac. About six weeks ago he threw in the towel and decided the WE API was lacking, a moving target and required a major effort on his part that he did not have the time for.

i am sure he could have managed it because chrome pointed out that with "awesome cookie manager"
i am sure that firefox is offereing the necessary api because "cookie autodelete" is functional but the access is different (empy dialog).
"edit this cookie" can read out cookies. maybe we have fortune the next weeks ;)

He is an experienced SW engineer with many years of experience who has a day job that takes a lot of time and rewards him with $$$. CM was a project he began in school and kept updated. Now that he is in the real world he does not see any reward for his time to do a complete rewrite.
