In ASP.Net when the browser are not supportive to cookies then such browsers can be handled by managing sessions with the help of Cookie Munging. According to inbuilt system of ASP.Net cookies are stored to session Ids, but when cookies are disabled in a web browser it is not possible to create any cookies on user’s local machine. In such situation session Id can be appended in a URL and can be passed directly to the server for it’s decoding and completion of the requested page, thus the requested page is enabled for retrieving any session variable. This all is possible with the user of Cookie Munging and it is very useful while dealing with old browsers which does not support cookies and few cases of domain name redirection. The code used for enabling Cookie Munging is “<sessionState cookieless= “true />”
