[sf-lug] cookies in Ubuntu

Um, cookies aren't specific to Ubuntu.  If you use a browser which supports
cookies on Ubuntu, and browse to a website that places them, then yes,
cookies will be "added" (i.e. stored on the hard drive, which I assume is
what you meant).  Browsers like Chrome and Firefox will do this by default.
 Each of them has their own default storage location (folder), and also have
interfaces on their menus you can use to delete them.  On Chrome, check
under Preferences on the menu.  On FF, it's Edit->Preferences.  The websites
for both browsers are quite transparent about where cookies are stored and
how they're managed.  Best to search the browser-specific help for the exact
answer you're looking for (i.e. "delete cookies").

Otherwise, as I stated to begin with, there's nothing specific to (end-user)
Ubuntu that's different from cookies on any other system.  Cookies are set
by the server you visit, not the OS you use.
