If you delete cookies and temp internet files, some sites still know who you are. How is that possible? Just curious? thanks

Others use "Super / Flash Cookies" that you don't clear by the normal means. An article on them:- Super Cookies Lurk in Your Browser – The Blogs at HowStuffWorks

I deleted my hidden cookies. The site I was looking for wasn't listed, guess they were using IPC address? My computer has ( in-private browsing), never used it, it works, the site doesn't know who I am. After looking around, a proxy server, will work also, depending on which one you use. It will hide your ipc address.

I have no reason to hide my ipc address, not trying to do anything illegal. Just wondered how some sites always knew who I was, even with deleting cookies? Now I know, thanks again.
