I know I can "Reset Safari". I know I can go to Cookies from Preferences and search for a site's cookies and delete those. But is there a faster/easier way to just clear cookies for one site (preferably one that I'm already navigated to)?

There you go!

Clearing a Specific Cookie on Safari: Safari makes you do a little more mousework to get to the listing of cookies in the system, and you have to specify which you want to remove. To get started, go to the preferences menu, and open the “Security” Options. Partway down the page is a button labeled “Show Cookies.” Click this.

Once you have clicked the “Show Cookies” button, you will be shown a listing of all of the cookies your browser has stored, along with a handy search box. Type the current domain name into this search to see a listing of cookies set by the current site. From here, you can select and delete the cookies.

Darn I realize you're looking for something simpler probably... –  Ivo Flipse Jul 30 '09 at 13:14
Nothing bad with a complete answer, really. :) –  Isxek Jul 30 '09 at 13:16
Oh Safari doesn't support plugins, that's going to make it hard... –  Ivo Flipse Jul 30 '09 at 13:16
Note, the Remove All button will do the same thing, once you've entered the domain into the search box. –  jtbandes Aug 2 '09 at 6:42
this even works on chrome +1 –  Yar Oct 8 '10 at 22:46
