10.5: Create session-only cookies in Safari in 10.5.6
Authored by: Kevvin7 on Jan 15, '09 12:11:35PM

To address a couple of the questions in comments here:

1. Cocoa Cookies is a cookie management tool and is probably great for people
who want to -manage- their cookies manually. This hint is for people who
just want them all to go away without needing to think about it. Automatically. Always.
In practice, this is not as draconian an idea as it may sound.

2. The password manager has pretty completely obviated any need I ever
had for persistent login cookies. ymmv, obviously.

3. This is -not- the equivalent of "private browsing". Private browsing
eliminates history and password information in addition to cookies.
This hint is designed to reduce the amount of data sent to external
sites. History and form information kept on the local machine is an entirely
different issue.

10.5: Create session-only cookies in Safari in 10.5.6
Authored by: Syed on Mar 29, '10 06:31:29PM

Hello, does anyone know how to achieve session only cookies programatically? I see that financial sites such as bank of America expire my session cookies but other sites, such as aa.com, do not expire my cookies. So, BofA has figured out how to write session cookies on the Mac OS. Can anyone explain how to do this via code.
