no, but i would assume most....

i just upgraded to IE6 however, it seems that IE6 is blocking a lot of cookies for me....which is cool, i think that if you have a privacy policy on your site, IE6 will accept your cookie.

gotta look more into that.

if you are talking about all users, across all service platforms, and browser types, I think that you're answer is going to be no, no one actually knows, that kind of information would require on central data service group to acquire cookie stats from every website across the entire worldwide web, and from every service provider in every area of the planet, I highly doubt such figures have been gathered.

What you could do though, is do a practical guessitmation based on random samplings of information, eg., look at AOL for their user cookie acceptance figures, Geocities, Tripod, etc., and then do the math...

This question has been abandoned. I will make a recommendation to the
moderators on its resolution in a week or two. I appreciate any comments
that would help me to make a recommendation.
<note>
   In the absence of responses, I will recommend DELETE unless it is clear
   to me that it has value as a PAQ.  Silence = you don't care
