If you have ever been to a web site like ivillage.com, iwon.com, or amazon.com, you may notice your name on the page in a message like "Welcome Back John!" This is because your browser stored a tiny cookie file that enabled their server to identify you from the first time that you registered with them. This saves regular visitors or customers of your site time from having to log in and log out every time they visit your site.
