No, not every site uses them. Most personal sites don't use them, though any ads inserted onto the page by the web provider or the webmaster will use them. If your Internet browser allows all cookies, then all the websites can use cookies. Many cookies are just stored on your PC so that you don't have to log back into sites or view introductory information the next time you visit that website. But if you block cookies from your Internet browser, there are some websites like Yahoo Mail that won't work without cookies.
