Well, it depends. Browsers are free to store cookies the way they want. IE uses files, Firefox used to use a single file called Cookies.txt and now uses a small database. So how the cookie is stored is something you can't control.

What gets stored is something you do control, things like the name, the value and the expiry date can all be set when you create the HttpCookie.

Hope this helps,
