In computer science, HTTP cookies (more commonly called Web cookies, tracking cookies or simply cookies) are lines of text used to perform automatic authentication, session tracking and storage of specific information regarding users accessing the server, such as favorite websites. or, in the case of internet purchases, the contents of their "shopping carts".
In detail, they are small text strings sent by a server to a Web client (usually a browser) and then sent back from the client to the server (without being modified) every time the client accesses the same portion of the same web domain. . The term "cookie" - literally "cookie" - derives from magic cookie (magic cookie), a concept known in the UNIX environment that inspired both the idea and the name of the HTTP cookies.
Each domain or part of it that is visited with the browser can set cookies. Since a typical Internet page, for example that of a newspaper on the net, contains objects that come from many different domains and each of them can set cookies, it is normal to host many hundreds of cookies in your browser.
