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.
