[back to package description]


A small tool that clears qutebrowser cookies


The bisc configuration file is $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/bisc/bisc.conf. It allows to change the paths of the QtWebEngine/Chromium directory and the whitelist file. The default settings are:

whitelist-path = $(XDG_CONFIG_HOME)/qutebrowser/whitelists/cookies
webengine-path = $(XDG_DATA_HOME)/qutebrowser/webengine


Create an empty whitelist file and write the domains of the allowed cookies, one per line. Eg.

Run bisc to delete all non-whitelisted data from qutebrowser.
