When I go to Expedia it fills all the blanks in the same as the last time I used it.
I don't have any of their cookies.
How do they do that?

Hi Tollerowner,

Are you using IE8 as your browser? If so, it could be that AutoComplete is configured to do so.

You can disable AutoComplete by going to Tools, then Internet Options. On the Internet Options screen go to the Content tab, and click the Settings button in the AutoComplete section. In the Settings uncheck the box next to Forms.

Read more about that feature here--> Windows Internet Explorer 8 Privacy Statement

Scroll down to the topic of Web browsing features that store data and look for the sub-topic of AutoComplete.

Even if you're not using IE8, I think most browsers have AutoComplete functions (available). (Check your browser's documentation for help turning off AutoComplete :D)

Could also be that they aren't relying on "Traditional" Cookies (I don't think that's the case here - but I've been wrong before). You sure they aren't using flash cookies anywhere?
