If you are new to the world of computers, one of the most important things to know about are browser cookies. By definition, browser cookies are small packets of data sent to your browser by the websites you visit. These packets or ‘cookies’ help the website track your browsing history on their platform and use that data for analytics or other applications. However, not all websites can be trusted and as such, according to the new regulations, the websites you visit have to take your permission before they can send these cookies to your browser.

The concept of cookies is also prevalent n the new Microsoft Edge browser, which has been released by Microsoft as a direct successor to the Internet Explorer browser. The Microsoft Edge browser is built on the Chromium engine and boasts features and performance enhancements that were previously absent in the Internet Explorer browser.
