I’m not talking here about what we in Britain call biscuits, but about bits of data which are stored on your computer when you visit certain web sites and are used when you revisit those sitesĀ  – see more information here.

The use of cookies has been in the news recently because of a European Directive that is attempting to ensure more consumer knowledge and control over them – see this news item.

A colleague of mine recently advised me on how, if you use Firefox as your web browser (which I do), you can identify and if necessary delete the cookies used on the sites you access. You can check it out here.
