Default Re: Cookies

yah, and if you want to cruise the web, pages of web sites won't load or load correclty, cuz your browser needs cookies for the page to load. also airiox is correct.

the cookies are stored temp. on your hhd, and remember the site that you are at, and are used for faster loading of already pages veiwed from that site.

if you have them turned off, your browser gets the case of amnesia and will have to re-load up pages youv'e allready been to.
