iCab has had this for a long time, as part of the preferences you can 
set different javascript  permissions (i.e. different things that 
scripts can or can't do) according to where they come from - what site, 

Netscape 7 in the preferences section (advanced, scripting) lets you 
allow or disallow certain functions - about a dozen including opening 
windows and so on) but not on a per-site basis.

Opera 6 for Mac, Opera 7 for windows, Safari for Mac only seemed to 
allow turning it on or off.

For cookies most browsers let you accept them all, deny them all, or 
ask before accepting (Safari doesn't have this last option). It is also 
common to be able to accept cookies from the site the page comes from, 
but not from things within the page (e.g. for images in a page...)
