    Can I set Safari 6 to not save a cookie from one specific website (NYTimes)? I've found that I can get around their 10 article/month limit by deleting the cookies from that website, but I don't want to do it manually every time I get blocked again.

    Thanks!

    I don't think so. You might be able to make an Automator Action to do it, or assign a Keyboard shortcut to Private Browsing and turn that on before going to the NYT website. Just some thoughts.

    Just set Accept cookies to never when you visit the site and reset that when leaving should work :)

    You could use the app Cookie for this. Set cookies you want to keep as favorites in the app and all others will get deleted when you quit Safari. Works for me.

    You could use Firefox to read the NYT, it has the cookie option that you are looking for.

    You could also pay.
    The I want everything free culture is dismantling the quality of our newspapers. Even the formerly good ones get worse and worse. In 2 or 3 decades maybe all we have left is idiot people tabloids and some very few expensive quality news papers that only are worth it for global news.

    I could read Time and BBC, along with Al Jazeera and maybe some CNN. No reason to pay $15/month for web access - That's more than I pay for Netflix, and I spend about 40022X more time on Netflix than on the New York Times.
