      The thing that I'll never empty again is, Forms & Passwords via Auto complete.

      I'm storing alot of passwords, saving alot of email adresses & usernames I won't be able to get them back.

        Well quite. Why save cookies which have little impact on privacy when you can save usernames and passwords which do?

          I always thought that cookies is related to History & Temp files, that should be deleted eveywhen to keep my PC clean...

          I just figured out their function recently.

            Many sites such as vBulletins where you check remember me, store userids and hashed versions of the password in cookies.

                  Ok, a reply to your post #19:

                  If you delete your cookies, history, temp it does not stop people from getting the passwords.
