In the IT world, a "cookie" is a small piece of data sent from a website and stored in the user's web browser while the user is browsing it. Cookies are set by many websites, and every time your browser loads that website it will also send it back to the server. Often, cookies will remain in your browser even when you close it and open it back again, used, for example, to remember what your username is (hence in that case avoiding you from entering your password every time).
