    Hi,
    Cookies are small bits of information that are saved to a user's hard drive, so any time said user returns to your website, you can customize the experience for them.
    For example :- <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com: office: office" /><o: p></o: p>

    yes now u ll understand itA message given to a Web browser by a Web server. The browser stores the message in a text file. The message is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server.The main purpose of cookies is to identify users and possibly prepare customized Web pages for them. When you enter a Web site using cookies, you may be asked to fill out a form providing such information as your name and interests. This information is packaged into a cookie and sent to your Web browser which stores it for later use. The next time you go to the same Web site, your browser will send the cookie to the Web server. The server can use this information to present you with custom Web pages. So, for example, instead of seeing just a generic welcome page you might see a welcome page with your name on it.

    A cookie is stored on the client's machine by their web browser software. To set a cookie, we include information in an HttpResponse that instructs the browser to save a cookie on the client's system.

    It's information that the server sends to your computer, and every time you go back to that website you send the cookie to the server so the server knows what to do.
