The brand-new Firefox 18.104.22.168 just implemented support for http-only
These cookies must be supported by the browser, since it is just a flag
the server sends to the browser to instruct the browser to not leak the
PHP 5.2 implemented some support for httpOnly cookies. A new 7th param
to setcookie() is a boolean to set the httpOnly flag.
A new ini file directive session.cookie-httponly to make session cookies
auto flag the httpOnly flag.
It seems from reading the comments on
that setting the flag doesn't break browsers that don't support the
flag. They just simply ignore the flag.
