What are cookies?
In the IT world, HTTP cookies (more commonly known as Web cookies, tracking cookies or simply cookies) are lines of text used to perform automatic authentication, for tracing of sessions and to store in memory specific information about users who access the server (such as, for example, his or her preferred sites or, in the case of purchases via the internet, the content of his or her "shopping cart").
More specifically, cookies consist of small strings of text sent by a server to a Web client (usually a browser) and then returned by the Web client to the server (without modification) each time the Web accesses the same part of the Web domain. Each domain (or portion of a domain) that the user visits using the browser may generate one or more cookies. And since a typical internet page (for example an on-line newspaper) contains objects coming from multiple different domains, and each of these domains may generate cookies, it is normal that a user's browser can contain hundreds of cookies.
How can I control cookies?
