    I've never actually used sessions before but does it not do the same thing as a cookie?

    Yes. Php session handling can save the info on the server, but it still uses regular cookies to identify the user. :)

    You are absolutely right, but anyone in their right mind wouldn't use sessions in the URL (think SEO) unless it was in a password-protected part of the site or you got rid of them for the bots.
