What are cookies?

Cookies are small data fragments which are placed and retrieved from your browser by the websites you visit.

They are responsible for keeping you logged into web sites like Gmail or Facebook, and their content is harmless.

However, cookies can be used by websites to identify you—though they are not the only way to do so. The EU has passed a law that requires all websites to provide cookie information to protect user's privacy and right of choice.

This is a noble cause which I personally support, though, the actual law is technically incompetent and does nothing for your privacy, while placing a lot of responsibility on webmasters and costing them a lot of time and money.

Put it another way, this law wants to protect users by forcing spoon merchants to inform clients about the chance of being harmed by a spoon, while ignoring knife, drug or gun marchants. It's useless.

You can read more on why this law is ignorant and some tips for webmasters on how to adapt their sites to it.
