What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small piece of information which is saved by a web page on the hard disc of the computer of a user.

Why do web pages use cookies?

Web pages don't have a memory.  When the user goes from one page to another, the web page doesn't recognise him as the same user.  Cookies allow the web page to recognise the user's browser.  Thus cookies are generally used to remember the options selected by the user (e.g. to remember the language used) or to recognise visitors who use the web page.

Do all cookies have the same function?

No, there are different types of cookies used in different situations. Cookies may be differentiated by function, duration and who stores them.
