HTTP cookies, web cookies, Internet cookies, browser cookies, they all are the same, but what are they?
In computing, cookies are small HTTP files that a computer automatically stores when a user visits a webpage.
They are kept so the system can open web pages faster and bespoke them to the user as the saved data gives an idea of the user’s behaviour and needs based on previous visits.
These files can be accessed by the user’s computer or the web server. Every time a webpage is loaded on a browser, a new cookie is created.
