Are there only cookies?
There may be websites that use other forms of storage similar to cookies but with more capacity, such as other forms of local data storage on the client’s computer, for example:
- HTML5 LocalStorage and sessionStorage: space that the website can use on the user’s computer. Normally deleting the Browsing history can clear them.
- Flash “Local Shared Objects” (Silverlight’s “isolated storage”): They are stored inside the Microsoft folder where you have the user profile. You have to go into the folder and delete it. (Example: vimeo videos).
These files are more intrusive than cookies, as they are more complicated to delete, store more information, and are independent of the browser used. We do not use this type of storage.
