I am new to the mac pro (I've always had PC) Can someone tell me the steps in removing cookies, tracking sites, etc. I know with PC there is a way to do that.

Also, in error I went on some adult sites which I would like to clean up. Thanks!

I thought this was an adult site....LOL ROFL LMAO

Seriously though, are there any programs for Macs that can control cookies. I used Cookie Monster in PC's and it would keep the ones you want and repelled all others.

Opera provides the most control of any Mac browser I have found including a fairly good cookie manager and a lot of tools built in including a password manager. Opera gives you general cookie control and website specific control of cookies in it's preferences pane. There is also a "quick preferences" which allows you to edit controls only for the site you are currently displaying. Anyone use to the control set in windows browsers like Avant browser will find Opera much to their liking on the Mac side. It is not quite as fast as a couple of other browsers out there, but is not bad on broadband and if the others had all the control options of Opera, don't believe they would be quite as fast either.

Other than that, all the major browsers I have used since getting my Mac have a built-in tool to delete all the junk that builds up while browsing. Of course the following delete pretty much everything.
Opera - Tools - Delete Private data
Firefox - Tools - Clear Private data
Safari - Safari - Reset Safari

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

Using FireFox, go to 'tools' then 'clear private data'...check all that apply.
