Cookies are text files that are stored in a browser folder. We need the site to recognize you when you re-enter it. That is, they contain authentication data, settings and user preferences. As well as statistics and tracking sessions with the user.

  • Changes to sites are not immediately displayed.
  • It stores a lot of cache from sites you do not need

Browser history it records which pages you opened.
