Sure, these are 'scary' when abused by websites, but some are needed to
maximise browsing convenience. For example, when about to delete a whole
block of *.sol files I noticed one was for abc's iview. This is how I
guess the site knows what you've watched before, and even more important
knowing where you are part way through a stream that gets interrupted.
