Just wondering: Does setting cookies to be blocked cause the site to load any faster? What if the cookie is already on your computer? Probably not enuf to tell, I'm guessing. Anyone have any idea on this?

Hey there wright3279. Blocking cookies may make internet browsing slower alot slower. For example Cookies store site information so if you have put your password here at Geeks To Go, and close the browser and re-open. You will not have to re-login. Login in takes quite alot of time.

So I wouldnt say cookies make a site load faster.

What if the cookie is already on your computer?

What do you mean??? Some cookies have expiry dates, so its on your computer today and its gone tomorrow.

Anything else??? :whistling:

Nearly every site puts on a cookie if you let it. I'm discounting the sites where you have to log in. But sites like CNN, Fox News, MSNBC, CBS, digg, etc, etc. If your browser is set to block the cookies from those sites, do they come thru quicker or are a few milliseconds lost as the computers do their communicating?

Hey there again wright3279. Then yes not allowing cookies will speed up when the way pages open. You will not see a diffrence (Few Milliseconds like you said) but it will speed it up a bit.

Cool :whistling:
