To all developers,

Please stop making web applications where ALL state is saved in cookies. If I make a search and select a result, why the hell are the search parameters not in the address bar, but rather in a bloody cookie, and why when I select a result is this page not identified by a unique address? Rather saved in a COOKIE. This makes having multiple tabs open pretty useless.

    I haven't seen this so far but it sounds so stupid and unusable

    Hmm.. At Least one can very well have fun, messing with the site by simply modifying the cookies...

    I hate cookie programmers too. Can't bookmark those URLs 😕

    Maybe multiple pages is expensive in server resources, but I know nothing about large-scale web services
