Little files known as cookies are kept on a user’s computer. They can be accessed by either the web server or the client computer and are made to retain a little bit of data that is specific to a given client and website. In addition, the page itself may contain script that is aware of the information in the cookie and can transport information from one visit to the website (or related site) to the next. This enables the server to produce a page that is customized for a specific user.
