What is a cookie?


A cookie is a small, flat and crisp cake made from sweetened dough that goes great together with a glass of milk. However, a cookie is also a small piece of text sent to your browser by a website that you visit. It helps the website to remember information about your visit. That can make your next visit easier and the site more useful to you. Cookies play an important role. Without them, using the web would be a much more frustrating experience.
