Quick and simple methods to delete cookies for a specific website on your preferred browser

Cookies are packets of information that websites deposit on the local storage of your computer to remember your preferences, cart items, etc., and keep you logged in on the website. However, many times when a site is behaving unexpectedly or appears broken on the browser, the first and foremost step is to clear the cookies so it can be reloaded and potentially fix the issue.

But you don’t have to clear the cookies for the entire browser when you’re facing the issue on a single website. Fortunately, clearing cookies for a specific website is extremely easy and only requires a little effort from your side.
