Cookies

Hey, so you know most of the internet uses cookies to do stuff – mainly to track what you click on to improve content and see what’s popular on their sites etc.. Every web-shop needs to use them to see who placed what order etc. It’s just the way we manage individual requests to servers- this person looked at this and now they are doing this..

The Facebook plug in that allows people to comment on the site uses them and a few other things. But be sure to know that I personally have no malicious use for the information cookies provide.

For a more detailed description about how they work, see the rather good wiki-pedia page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HTTP_cookie
