What are Cookies?
Cookies are data, stored in small text files, on your computer.
When a web server has sent a web page to a browser, the connection is shut down, and the server forgets everything about the user.
Cookies were invented to solve the problem “how to remember information about the user”:
- When a user visits a web page, his name can be stored in a cookie.
- Next time the user visits the page, the cookie “remembers” his name.
