What I am going to play around with and make is a shopping cart app. I was debating using cookies or sessions to store their current items. I know sessions are more secure then cookies, but is there any other immediate advantages to using sessions over cookies? I imagine since they are stored on the server, access to them may be a bit quicker. *shrugs*
Also, is using sessions sound like a good idea for storing the shopping cart info that the user selects? I haven't made a cart app yet, so I was just wondering if sessions is the way to go.
