    The cookies named __utma  through  __utmz and __ga to __gat come from Google Analytics, which primarily uses it to track visits.  The cookie names likely come from the earlier versions called the Urchin Tracking Module, and are also by the newer ga.js.

    Some details:

        __utmz stores where a visitor came from (search engine, search keyword, link)

        __utma stores each user's amount of visits, and the time of the first visit, the previous visit, and the current visit (presumably partly for double checking of this information).

        __utmb and __utmc are used to check approximately how long you stay on a site: when a visit starts, and approximately ends (c expires quickly). If you look at cookie state changes (e.g. using firecookie), you will see these change regularly.

       __ga   is used to distinguish users.

       __gat1 is used to throttle request rate.
