How does SO's new auto-login feature work?

I've noticed that, even after I delete all cookies, Firefox Cache, Flash cache, etc. StackOverflow still knows who I am and automatically logs me in. It's a nice feature but if StackOverflow can do it, so can others. Where does StackOverflow store my login information on my computer on Firefox 3.6 / Windows 7?

  • I think the answer is HTML5 local storage. I don't know how it works on non-HTML5 browsers, though.

  • Odd that clearing the cookies in Firefox didn't work for you; in my earlier tests that worked fine in Firefox and Chrome, just not in Safari. Or did you only delete specific cookies?

Is it possible you are logged in with Google or Facebook or another service which is coupled to your Stackoverflow account?
