Reports from University of Alberta advance knowledge in web engineering
"Cookie usage amongst five popular dynamic web application frameworks is analyzed providing a per-country breakdown of platform adoption and the establishment of a link between dynamic web technologies and first-party and sessional cookies. The prevalence of vendor-specific third-party technologies both globally and within specific countries is studied. Although global leaders emerged, a number of country-specific market leaders were discovered, suggesting that country-specific niche technologies are competing with the globally dominant technologies within specific markets," wrote A.F. Tappenden and colleagues, University of Alberta.
The researchers concluded: "A large association is identified between third-party persistent cookie usage and a country's e-business environment-the strongest evidence that cookies are an integral part of the global e-commerce environment."
Tappenden and colleagues published their study in the Journal of Web Engineering (A SURVEY OF COOKIE TECHNOLOGY ADOPTION AMONGST NATIONS. Journal of Web Engineering, 2009;8(3):211-244).
