What are cookies?
What a question! Cookies are chocolate chip sweets that drive us crazy at Bitamine. According to Wikipedia (as always), they were curiously not invented in the Basque Country, but in the United States back in 1930 by a beautiful person named Ruth Graves Wakefield, from Massachusetts. She ran a home-cooked restaurant like the ones in the American movies, which provided endless free refill coffee. But Ruth also gave her customers a free extra portion of cookies to take home. Cookies were definitely not invented in the Basque Country (down here, we don’t get anything scot-free, not even a paltry peanut).
But also, we are afraid so, cookies are small text files that are downloaded to your computer when you access a website, and they don't carry chocolate chips, not even palm oil, rather nothing at all.
They are not evil or demonic viruses, but tools that play an essential role in providing many services on the Internet. Among other things, they enable sites to remember the language in which you want to surf the web, to collect statistics to optimize the functionality of the site or to share contents in your social media.
