 ==================
 
-Dillo's cookies implementation is guided by ongoing work by the HTTP State WG
-( http://www.ietf.org/dyn/wg/charter/httpstate-charter ) to specify current
-real-world cookies usage.
+The current specification for cookies is RFC 6265
+( http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc6265 ).
 
 Cookies are handled by a dpi (plugin) which shares them between your
 instances of Dillo.
 
-Currently, cookie limits are: 20 per domain, and 1200 in total.

  The dillo project is especially concerned about privacy and security
 issues. Our advice is to avoid cookies whenever possible and at most set
 ACCEPT_SESSION to specific, trusted sites.  -- You have been warned.
