Obsolete
This feature is obsolete. Although it may still work in some browsers, its use is discouraged since it could be removed at any time. Try to avoid using it.

The obsolete Cookie2 HTTP request header used to advise the server that the user agent understands "new-style" cookies, but nowadays user agents will use the Cookie header instead, not this one.

Header type Request header
Forbidden header name yes

Examples

Cookie2: $Version="1"
