remember me

Many sites have a “remember me on this computer” checkbox when logging in, which saves a cookie on your computer so you remain logged into the site. Slashdot actually makes the cookie opt-out: you must select “public terminal” if you don’t want to save a cookie on the computer.

Today I saw an interesting feature on the AAA Auto Club web site. It had the typical “remember me” checkbox when logging in. I logged in but did not select the checkbox.

Then on the “my account” page, it presented the option again. This is the first time I have seen an option to save your account cookie other than on the log-in form. It also gives you the ability to delete the cookie. It’s a nice detail.
