I was just wondering on Safari do i delete cookies or do i leave them there?

When i went to preferences, i saw that i have like 700 cookies stored. Would removing them harm my browsing experience or do i leave them there?

The problem you might have is some sites use cookies to remember your login info (if you allow it). So if you just delete all your cookies you may find some sites require you to reenter a user name and password. It can be a real hassle if you have to do this for a lot of sites.

don't delete 'em, eat 'em! :D

removing them would remove all the logins and information that you have kept with safari...
