What's the maximum number of cookies allowed?

Let's test

cookies, with value
Create me some cookies
(Could take some time)
Created cookies
Now check which cookies are still set
Remembered cookies
Now please erase those cookies again

A small list with browsers

Opera 8.01 on Windows
remembered 30 cookies
Firefox 1.0.6 on Windows
remembered 50 cookies
Internet Explorer 6 (on Windows ;-)
remembered 20 cookies
Safari 2.0
remembered all cookies(!), tested to a maximum of 1000
remembered 50 cookies


It all quite heavily depends on the size of each cookie. A browser could remember less cookies. Not more though, I think. Test around for yourself :)
