CookieSwap manufacturer description

CookieSwap 0.5.1 is an extension that enables you to maintain numerous sets or 'profiles' of cookies that you can quickly swap between while browsing. This is useful for tasks like:

* Changing your cookies/identity to web e-mail sites (like Yahoo, Gmail, Hotmail, etc) so that you can quickly look like different users. Nice if you maintain multiple accounts and are tired of logging out and then back in to switch accounts. Also nice if two people are using the same computer and want to switch between accounts quickly.

* Changing your cookies/identity to see how sites like Amazon and Google treat you differently depending on who you are. For example, if Amazon recognizes you as a returning shopper they give you a different looking page (and there were claims that they give you different prices also). Google has begun to use a feature called 'Personalized Search', where they modify their search results based on your user identity. There is a question about this when you create your Google account. The results of Google searches are different depending on if Google knows you or not. Use CookieSwap Other to quickly swap between Google recognizing you and being anonymous. Run the same search and see the differences.

* If you design web sites, you can setup numerous cookie profiles to look like different types of users and swap between those users quickly and easily to test your site in numerous modes (you can hand edit the cookies to have distinct values in each profile using a nice extension like 'Add & Edit Cookies').

Here is an example to show how this extension works:
1)Right click on the CookieSwap download area of the Status Bar Panel (lower right corner of the browser) to bring up the CookieSwap menu. Select a profile (let's say 'Profile1')
2)Go to a web e-mail site (like and login
3)Bring up the CookieSwap menu again and select a different profile (let's say 'Profile2')
4)Again go to the web e-mail's main page. Note: Don't click on a link in the current open page. Instead, hand type the, or use a bookmarked entry for the site.
5)Notice the site doesn't recognize you as the previous user. Login with a different username if you want.
6)Use the CookieSwap menu to go back to Profile1 and again surf to the web e-mail's main page. It recognizes you again as the original user that logged in!

Now you can easily look like multiple different people on the web.

Load with Profile1, change your profile and load that page again. Amazon seems to know things about you, huh?
