I just cleaned the article up. I hope it's clearer. I think it is, considering it used to have paragraphs like:
When you enter a Web site using cookies, you may be asked to fill out a form providing such information as your name and interests. This information is packaged into a cookie and sent to your Web browser which stores it for later use. The next time you go to the same Web site, your browser will send the cookie to the Web server. The server can use this information to present you with custom Web pages.
I've noticed something about Sonlight's older web content: We try to be so helpful that the content becomes overwhelming and unhelpful. I'm working on fixing that.
Brevity with clarity.
It's a beautiful thing.
In other news... did you notice the new 2010 logo?
