One of the most technically ambitious decisions to recently come out of the European Union (a body I happen to typically have a great deal of empathy for) is the recent decision on Cookies. The decision has various impacts, but at its heart, the idea is that cookie are bad. At least that marketeers using them are bad. I understand the point of view, the development of cookies over the years has gone a great deal further than ensuring that session data remains through a transaction and now allows for all sorts of cross site tracking.
