I think for every browser the cookie is same and it's related JavaScript functions or format.
If anything making you confused then post your code here.

Kind regards,

well i made a cookie from domain a from ie and using document.cookie i read it as well
but when i tried to read it using firefox the document.cookie was null
when i went back to ie to check if the cookie still existed it gave me the values

the same happened when i made it with firefox and tried to read it with ie

is there a way to set the cookie that it can be read and modified in cross browser situation

Ok!
I think you are confusing with Web-Technology Still.
Look, the browsers never share there internal settings with each other.
They keep their own copy.
Never let it to be public.
And what you sense says?

I'm not sure if it's possible, but why would you want it anyway? A user is unlikely to visit your website using two different browsers.

Thanks dmjpro,acoder
well i am working on behavioral targeting
and if the user comes across a website using different browsers at different times, then the value stored in cookie should be read and updated and if it is not possible in cross browsers then the user will have more than one user id, one for browser a and another for browser b and so on

if cross browser cookie can be implemented, i can track users across different browsers so thats why i was asking for this
