It may be that there are websites that use other forms of storage similar to cookies but with more capacity, such as other forms of local data storage on the client's computer, for example:
HTML5 LocalStorage and sessionStorage: Space that the web can use on the user's computer. Normally deleting the Browsing history can be deleted.
Flash's 'Local Shared Objects' (Silverlight's 'isolated storage'): These are stored inside the Microsoft folder where you have your user profile. You have to go into the folder and delete it. (Example: vimeo videos).
Flash is used to incorporate multimedia elements on a website, and for this it stores files on the user's computer.
The web beacon is used to track your activity, inserting a mini-image that you are not even aware of. When you browse the web, it is loaded along with the page, and the server from which the photo is downloaded, records the time of access, or the times you have accessed.
These files are more intrusive than cookies, since they are more complicated to eliminate, they store more information, and they are independent of the browser used. We do not use this type of storage.
