You could block cookies and flash content and Dragon will show you an icon if either of these are required for a particular site. From these icons, you can then allow (creating a rule) depending on whether they are actually needed or not. I ran this setup for a while but in the end, went back to Dragon’s default settings.
This is in fact an safe option, but not at all functional, it is very time consuming to add a rule for every site you visit. Keep in mind, almost all sites require cookies these days. I wish there was a simpler way to add the rule, right click on the cookie icon should be enough.
Any way I have checked the “delete all cookies after close web browser” option.
Yes, I mentioned quite some time ago that a more robust cookie manager would be a nice addition. I think the Cookie Monster extension for Firefox is just about perfect. I’d love to see something like that in Dragon because there aren’t any Chrome extensions that offer similar functionality.
Vanilla is the closest thing, but it’s not anywhere near as usable as Cookie Monster. I don’t know if this is an issue with lack of API controls over cookie functionality or what, but I thought it wouldn’t take long until Cookie Monster was duplicated for Chrome, but it isn’t happening…
True and this is why I went back to CD / Chromium’s default settings.

Yes, every site I visit usually requires a cookie of some sort. For me, I can block most only allowing sites I visit frequently like Comodo forums for example. Did you know that you can right-click on the blocked cookie icon in the address bar to add an exception.

I haven’t used this option myself yet but wouldn’t this delete your settings (cookie) per site unless it works similar to IE9 in which it won’t delete your favourite sites.
