    Cookies IDed from Name (IE all versions)

    <img src=/S/hello.gif border=0 alt=hello width=25 height=29> Loungers

    I have searched this lounge looking for a way to identify a cookie to a web site.

    When I looked at my cookies folder, I found that the names don't really tell a whole lot, or do they? <img src=/S/shrug.gif border=0 alt=shrug width=39 height=15>

    I see names like <font color=red> wassim@hit1.xstats[1].txt </font color=red> What does that mean? How could I tell which site this cookie came from?

    Thanks for your help. If you are up to it, and have some neat Cookie tutorial web sites, please send them my way. Not urgent, but I would like to see what you have discovered.

    In general, the domain name is included in the cookie. For the one you posted, the domain is "hit1.xstats.?". The "top level" domain (.com or.net) is missing, but otherwise you can get the idea. Also, simply double-click on the file and frequently the web site will be easily indentifiable.

    There are cookie viewers out there that make this process easier. Karenware has one, and then I list another one in that other thread. Take your pick.
