What are Cookies?

Cookies are data, stored in small text files, on your computer. When a web server has sent a web page to a browser, the connection is shut down, and the server forgets everything about the user.

Cookies were invented to solve the problem of “how to remember information about the user”:

How Cookies Works

  • When a user visits a web page, his/her name can be stored in a cookie.
  • The next time the user visits the page, the cookie “remembers” his/her name.
  • When a browser requests a web page from a server, cookies belonging to the page are added to the request.
  • This way the server gets the necessary data to “remember” information about users.

      <p>Where does it come from?</p>

      <p>
        Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of "de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum" (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..", comes from a line in section 1.10.32.

      <p>
        Lorem ipsum, dolor sit amet consectetur adipisicing elit. Deserunt nam,
        commodi velit quia id dolore cum sapiente repellendus odio magnam
        quibusdam neque eius qui hic esse numquam modi sint inventore mollitia,
        accusantium animi ea omnis? Alias nihil tempore illo magni?
      </p>

      <p>
        Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet consectetur adipisicing elit. Nisi, soluta.
      </p>

      <p>
        There are many variations of passages of Lorem Ipsum available, but the majority have suffered alteration in some form, by injected humour, or randomised words which don't look even slightly believable. If you are going to use a passage of Lorem Ipsum, you need to be sure there isn't anything embarrassing hidden in the middle of text. All the Lorem Ipsum generators on the Internet tend to repeat predefined chunks as necessary, making this the first true generator on the Internet. It uses a dictionary of over 200 Latin words, combined with a handful of model sentence structures.
