Cocoon is beginning a limited rollout from beta and to mark the occasion we’re working with Lifehacker, a weblog focused on software and personal productivity shortcuts that help you work smarter and save time. We felt Lifehacker readers were perfectly suited to both appreciate Cocoon’s privacy, security and productivity features, and provide us with the feedback and suggestions we need to continue shaping Cocoon.
In addition to the free trial, for a limited time, users that sign up for Cocoon through the Lifehacker post will get Cocoon for only $3/mo. (regularly $6.95). And the best part? This special price never expires. As long as you have your user account, that’s the only price you’ll pay.
Cocoon has come a long way; kinks have been ironed out, features added and trimmed, and performance boosted. But, there’s still more to do. That’s where you come in. Your feedback will help shape Cocoon and make it the best it can be. We’ll listen closely and fine-tune the product, its performance, and its features. This is a huge opportunity to leave your mark on the service before the cement begins to cure.
For this launch, all of our standard features will be there, cleaned up and improved:
Privacy – Goodbye to IP tracking and geolocation
Security – Stop drive-by malware and tracking cookies
History – Cloud based Cocoon history
Mailslots – Disposable email addresses that you control.
Notes – Annotate websites or the Web for later use.
And it wouldn’t be a launch if we didn’t bring something new to the party. We’re introducing three new features to Cocoon:
Favorites – Cloud based Cocoon favorites, accessible wherever you have Cocoon.
Cookie Manager – Get real control over your cookies; delete them, keep them, and completely deny websites from giving them to you in the first place.
Minimized Toolbar – Send the Cocoon toolbar to the bottom of Firefox, where it’s smaller and out of the way.
Of course more features are on the way, in fact we’re working on Facebook blocking even as we speak.
At last, it’s time to take back your privacy and your web experience. Cocoon is about to go live. We welcome you to give us a try, for free, and see what the future of safe browsing looks like.
