1.I wish to know more about how the browser identifies the users.
What is that authentication mechanism?
Using cookies or sessiontracking we can track one's username or password.Without entering these how can identify the user?
Please explain in detail.

you would have to keep the session object alive all the time (can be memory consuming if you have thousands of sessions) plus the user would have to have the cookie on there machine.

Theres a button called 'brightness' but it doesn't work
