Subject: Re: [Zope3-Users] Authentication without cookies

Slightly off-topic: What mobile browsers that support XHTML don't
support cookies these days? Don't need an accurate answer but I'm
curious about rough numbers.

Well, I have a SonyEricsson K750i which seems not to support cookies. It does
have some options for cookies, but they don't work.

And the SonyEricsson K550i does support cookies, but - even worse - sometimes
does not send the cookie, which *may* have something to do with the cookie
path and bugs in the mobile browser. In this case, the user loses his
authentication and has to login.

So, if even such recent models have severe cookie-problems, I deduce that
things will be at least the same if not worse in older models. But I can only speak about SonyEricsson models as I had not yet time to test other brands.

Moreover, WAP seems not to support cookies by design, at least in another,
incompatible fashion, which I'm unsure how this works.

A little off the zope topic, but...

In order to ensure usability by all of our users (regardless as to device type) we do not use cookies on our WAP sites. We embed a session identifier in every url.
