This article I found is basically talks about the cookies from HTTP. Cookies have great usages on the online selling or business. The function of cookies is to memory some data and information between both server and client side. In addition, it can also reduce the information and data stored in the computers of the client side. However, cookies have made some concerns to the people. For example, cookies made connection from the client to the server. It simply means some of the information from the client side can be known by the server side. Especially some of the websites that are requesting for the personal information might be stored into a cookie and be visible to the server.


HTTP was mentioned on the chapter one. Cookie is a kind of web technology working with the HTTP. I think it is good to talk about the cookies. People who doesn’t know computer or internet well will think that cookies are the food. However, cookies are user tracking device in the world of the computer and internet.

Overall, I think cookies are related to the topics that were covered in chapter one. Cookies can be a tools or components we can have or used while developing the website. Since cookies have all those pros and cons, it is great to think how to use it properly and remove the concerns form people and make full benefits out of it.
