Are cookies the only forms of storage?

It is possible that there are websites using other storage formats similar to cookies but with greater capacity such as other local forms of data storage on the client’s computer – for example:

    • LocalStorage and sessionStorage by HTML5: Space that the website can use on the user’s computer. These can normally be deleted by deleting the browsing history.
    • “Local Shared Objects” by Flash (“isolated storage” by Silverlight): These are stored within the Microsoft folder where the user’s profile is located. It is necessary to open the folder to delete this. (For example: vimeo videos).
      Flash is used to incorporate multimedia elements at a single website. To accomplish this, it stores files on the user’s computer.
    • The web beacon is used to trace your activity by inserting a mini-image you do not even notice. When you browse the web, it charges you along with the page and the server from which you downloaded the photo and records the access time or the number of times you have accessed it.

These files are more intrusive than cookies since their removal is more complicated, they hold more information and they do not depend on the browser being used. We do not use this type of storage.
