  1. Hello Lani,
    Great information here… I have been using IE but recently I switched to Google Chrome which I like very much. I was used to deleting my cookies with IE but I have not done it with GC… Is it the same process as Firefox? Thanks for reminding me to look into this…

  4. Hey Lani,
    I always had that question in the back of my mind. “How to get rid of those cookies?” Thanks for the information because it was informational to me and I’ll get right on it. People had told me that they just go away, but somehow, I didn’t feel like they do.
    You have cleared up one of those questions in my mind.

    Lani, is it true that some cookies get cleared if you turn off your computer, especially the ones that eat memory even when they don’t need it any more? That’s what I was told.–Annie
