Client Session Varaibles

P: n/a
Hello All!

Do the major browsers (IE primarily) have sesion variables that are
specific to the browser, and that would have no server interface? I
need to store data in a session variable and access it throughout a
number of pages as long as the browser is active. What is the object
in the browser that can do this?

Thank you very much in advance!

Since you are asking in a javascript newsgroup, then this is the
potential solution. With client-side scripting there is no session
variables per se, but one way to persist data throughout the site is
through the use of cookies. However, you should note that the use of
cookies is not reliable since the user can have them turned off.
