Sessions use cookie unless you force the URL session ID. Once you do that, your options are pretty limited. You must pass some sort of identifier from page load to page load to track a session. This can either be via cookie (a preferred method) or through GET or POST variables. There is no other good way that I'm aware of.

Actually, you might be able to engineer a small persistant data store based on a Flash object. I've seen this done before - I think there are some javascript libraries that use this technique.

Why complicate things when you can just use cookies? I still don't understand people's aversion to using them. They serve a very useful purpose and the downsides are trivial.

The question is: Is session the only and/or best way to achieve this
functionality. (Don't want cookies).
Is there some efficient session mechanism available to achieve this?
