This article describes an increase in the per-domain cookie limit of Internet Explorer from 20 to 50.
By default, Internet Explorer can store a maximum of 20 cookies for each domain. If a server in the domain sends more than 20 cookies to a client computer, the browser on the client computer automatically discards some old cookies.
Each cookie consists of a single name-value pair. This pair may be followed by attribute-value pairs that are separated by semicolons.
This limit has been increased to simplify the development and the hosting of Web applications on domains that must use many cookies. Installing update 937143 increases the number of cookies that Internet Explorer can store for each domain from 20 to 50.
