How to manage cookies in JQuery?

+3 votes

I want to delete cookies whenever user is navigating away from my page.

Cookies should be cleaned when user delete tab/browser or user change URL and press enter. It should not be deleted when user press 'F5' or click other link in same page.

You are right. I want it for all the browsers.
Language can be Jquery or Javascript.

You can set a timeout of a certain number of days (10 here) on the cookie:

$.cookie("test", 1, { expires : 10 });

Here I want to stress one point If the expires option is omitted, then the cookie becomes a session cookie, and is deleted when the browser exits.

Timeout will not work in my case.
I want to clear data as soon as user leave the page.

Try something like

<body onload="SetCookie()" onunload="del_cookie()">

where as

function del_cookie(name) {
    document.cookie = name +
    '=; expires=Thu, 01-Jan-70 00:00:01 GMT;';

But this same will clear the data if user try to refresh.
You can only detect when the page is unloaded (refresh or close), not when the window is closed that's what I know...

Can we check wheather it is a F5 press or not by this:

$('document').bind('keypress', function(e) {
            if (e.keyCode == 116){
                someCheckVal = true;
