What is a "Cookie"?

On  the  Internet,  and  as  it pertains  to  online  functionality,  a  "cookie"  is  a  small  piece  of information sent by a web server to be stored on a web browser so that it can be read back later  from  that  browser.  This  becomes  useful  for  having  the  browser  remember  specific information about a visitor to a particular Website. The cookie is a text file that is saved in the browser's directory and is stored in RAM while the browser is running. The cookie may also be stored on the computer's hard drive once a user logs off from that Website or web server.
