Windows 98 > Internet Explorer 5 Tips


Cookies Management

By: Arie Slob

Internet Explorer 5 finally has some better way of dealing with Cookies. The settings for cookies in Internet Explorer 4 is located on the Internet Options > Advanced tab, and so there was only a "Global" setting.

In Internet Explorer 5 the cookies settings are found on the Internet Options > Security tab. This means that you can now selectively accept cookies from certain sites; just add the site from which you want to accept cookies to the Trusted sites zone, and use the Custom level button to change your settings, including the cookies setting.

Internet Explorer 5 also distinguishes between "per session" cookies and "normal" ones. "Per session" cookies are set for just the one session, but they are deleted when you finish the session.
