    What browser are you using? If Safari, just go to Safari>Reset Safari in the menubar.

    If you want to delete individual cookies, just go to Safari>Preferences>Security tab>Show Cookies.

    If you're surfing for pr0n, just use the "Private Browsing" mode in Safari. :p

    If you use Firefox as your main browser, there's a great extension for it that essentially does the same thing as "Private Browsing" on Safari - Go get this extension (Distrust).

    Hope this helps,

    Firefox

    In Firefox, you can also go to the menu: Tools/Clear Private Data...
