Is there an internet browser for Android that allows you to edit cookies?

    The title is basically my whole problem. I need an internet browser for android that supports editing cookies individually, either built into the browser or available through an add on. I have only ever seen browsers that let you delete all cookies at once, but I need to either edit cookies individually or at the very least delete them individually. Editing them would be preferable, though. Any help would be much appreciated.

    EDIT: Well, nevermind, I figured out a solution on my own. If anyone's interested, I used the SQLite editor from Speed Software on the Google Play store to find and edit cookies made by Chrome. It was way easier than I thought it would be, too, especially since I'm not at all familiar with computer programming. You do need to have a rooted device for this to work, though, and I'm honestly not entirely sure how safe it is to edit these files directly, but it looks like it worked for me.

    I can't find any cookies, I know I have several of them in chrome.

    I open sqlite and click on chrome in the apps list. one file is presented "snapshot.db", click it, 3 files presented "android_metadata", "snapshots", "sqlite_sequence"

    All are empty except for metadata, it has two rows "locale" and "sv_SE".

    Please tell me where the cookie files are supposed to be located.

    That's why you have to have the device rooted as otherwise you can't see where the cookies are stored.
    Which is crap, really.

    That's a choice made by the browser's developer. They could choose to store cookies in a user area like /sdcard/<browser>/cookies if they wanted to give you access, but if instead they store them with the rest of the app's internal data you will require root to access them (which is a consequence of the security model for app data).
