Every day brings news of something bad for Mac users. If it’s not the threat of viruses, worms, spyware or malware in general, it’s Goliath Google tricking your browser so you can be tracked in even more detail. What? How’s that? Yes, to Google, you’re the product, and they want to track your every move online. How can you beat their cookie monster? Fire against fire. Cookie against cookie. There’s a cheap app for that.
Delete Cookies Or Eat Cookies?
The solution to my Mac’s cookie woes was easier than I expected. Don’t worry. Be happy. If you’re afraid of cookies that track you, then you need cookies that can’t.
Cookie Recipes is a Mac app that, 1) doesn’t do away with cookies, it encourages their use, and, 2) gives you cookies you can bite into.
Literally. These are cookies you can eat. Literally. Cookie Recipes is what it is. An app with a bunch of cookie recipes.
Forget those cookies that track your browser habits. Google already knows what web pages you watch, what size your underwear is, and what you feed your dog.
What better way to push aside the worries of the day than with a batch of cookies, all cooked up (figuratively) by an app on your Mac?
Cookie Recipes is easy to use. Select from one of the dozens of cookie recipes in the left column, then read the ingredient list and details in the center column.
Seriously. How can Google’s anti-privacy antics compare to a batch of Banana-Oatmeal Cookies?
What would an advertiser send you if they knew you were cooking up a batch of Lemon Cream Oat Bars, or Applesauce Granola Cookies?
This is a Mac app you will enjoy using. Click on a cookie. Get a recipe.
Right below the ingredient list is the how-to of efficient cookie making and baking.
That’s it. There’s nothing else to do but click, read, mix, bake, eat.
See? Doesn’t even the sound of those steps take away the stress of knowing that Google blatantly violates your privacy with monster cookies, knows all the details of your love life and financials, and sells the information to the highest bidder (and the next highest, and the third highest, etc., ad nauseam)?
Cookies may be a necessary evil while you’re browsing around online, but cookies themselves, the kind you can smell and touch and eat, take away pretty much any kind of momentary stress caused by our internet overlords.
