Does this style of cookie manager exist?

To me an ideal cookie manager would do this...

Accept cookies when I visit a page, but delete when I leave the page,
_except_ for those I designate that I want to keep, like banks, credit
card companies, drug store, etc.

I've surfed for such an animal but not found one.  Does something like
this exist?

I have some kind of such on the Lenovo put up just now.

It's a cookie destruct or evaporate as I recall.

You get a cookie, then a couple minutes later a flag appears in the upper  
right saying cookie destructed.

So yeah, it exists.
I clear my home directory caches as well for Java-script that clamtk  
doesn't like in heuristic.

Sounds like what I'm looking for.  Can you determine its program name?

Thanks!

Firefox "cookie controller" add-on seems to work great for me.

You can default to not allow any cookies, or whitelist to allow for
sites to set during session and forget after, or whitelist for
completely normal operation.

I can't see any such behaviour, My list of cookies only contains ones I
have whitelisted, plus ones for sites I have open right now. Been using
it a few weeks. I suspect the report is erronious although can't be sure
I suppose. Certainly behaviour is as I would expect, for example sites
revisited always display the legally required "cookie notice" as if the
visit is for the first time. Newspaper sites no longer turn paywall
after a few visits like they used to. Google has not put itself onto the
whitelist etc.

In short it works fine for me.

OK.  I do note a lot of paranoia on the web... for instance the Eudora
group went ballistic when I opined that I installed Eudora outside of
Program Files... claiming all kinds of security issues... bah humbug

BTW, Eudora Pro v7.1.0.9 works just ducky under Win7 that way!

Oh you are right to be paranoid... It would not have enormously
surprised me but it still looks OK to me, I only saw that one report and
it seems pretty popular.

Windows and malware are pretty much synonyms. I am using it on linux but
there is enough overlap in the case of firefox - due to the high usage
on windows - that you still have to be careful.

I'm using CookieCuller, which I think does almost what you want: it
deletes all cookies on exit (from Firefox, not from the page) except
for the ones that you manually protect.  But I've just noticed it
hasn't been updated for years, so maybe someone else in this thread
will suggest something newer and/or better for both of us.

   Why limit?
   What about all of those URLs visited as the browser rendered the page?
   Fer eggzample doubleclick, akami, etc?

Use a browser that supports profiles, and use a different profile for
your "serious" usage.

Or use an OS that supports multiple users, and run the "serious" browser
as a separate user.

  Good response.  I'd go for version two.

  And since Windows allows multiple logins and switching between them,
it is not all that labor intensive either, so Jimmy boy shouldn't cry
too much.

  Now it only comes down to whether or not he has the common sense and
logic filters to see this as the right solution.

  Of course me weighing in stating that it is the way to go will taint
the idiot's capacity to 'see' the answer right in front of his face.

Another option is to use your browser's "private browsing"
mode when visiting sites where you don't want to be tracked.
As far as I know, all browsers have this option, though some
may call it "incognito", etc.  (Tested Opera, Firefox,
Chrome, Safari, and Explorer.)

  In firefox, it is called "new private window".  So it is not even a
"tab" on your current window, which should help to remind you what the
window's purpose for being segregated was.

You should have posted what browser you are using.
