Remembering Site Preferences
The Stateless process is involved in browsing the Internet. The website that you navigate to has no memory of who comes and goes. Once the information that your browser requests from a site is downloaded to your computer, the connection is dropped. If you return to the site later the site has no knowledge that you were just there. If a site has several pages and if you go from one page to the other, the site does not remember which pages you have accessed. The cookie helps in remembering the site preferences where you were previously working.
