Since I can store objects in the session,
I can't see what cookies are for ...
And I hear a lot about cookies.

What are they used for in comparison with sessions,
and a concrete example will help !

Thank !!

Cookies are stored on the client, not the server. Cookies are used to record preferences on the client and also session info
