As a Firefox user, I second Jerry's request. If the e-mail had said "View And Edit Cookies As You Browse A Site With Chrome" instead of just "View And Edit Cookies As You Browse A Site", that would have been better.

It would be nice if you could mention in the opening screen that Edit This Cookie is for Google Chrome.This way, IE users don't have to read the article to the end to find out it's for Chrome only.

This has been happening with other browser and OS specific programs.

If you would be more specific in the opening page, it would be appreciated.
