Take a simple example, 2 browsers - opened separately, pointing at different
pages. We thought that we could set some property of each instance of the
browser to a unique value (i.e. the window name). We would only need to do
it once, when entering the site.
But, when a new page is loaded there is no way from PHP to grab this unique
value, unless it has been sent to the loaded page as a GET or POST variable.
This would mean that we would have to pass this value to every page as a GET
or POST variable. GETs are problematic, leaving us with POSTs only. But
POSTING to every page is a pain.
Is there any other way?
