(First draft... feedback is apreciated.)
This is the main page for Session Management exposed to the browser Community Group of the W3C.
This activity is started due to some guy some day questioned himself about why do not all sites show a logout action visible to the user. Some sites hides de logout action or place it in some non obvious menu entry. Some sites don't have any interest in you logging out of their sites. Some other sites want to remember your "name" and your "preferences" in order to track yourself.
The aim of the activities of this community is to collect what are the different ways to expose the session management functionalities to the browser in a standard way. This will allow a browser to (for example) handle the session, logout the user, show a visible button to logout for each page or tab in the browser, logout the user on browser exit, etc.
* Features we want. * Levels where it could be implemented. Pros/cons. Security concerns.
* Logout should be done by a POST request because it changes the state of the server. Read more in here and there.
