How many computer cookies can you have?

Every website you visit places a small file onto your computer harddrive called "a cookie". A cookie tracks web visiting behavior. But it also contains information for your userID, loggin, and the last time you visited the site. If you look at a list of computer cookies saved onto your computer, often you will see a number in brackets after it showing the number of visits. Computer cookies are also useful when a person buys via the Internet. Computer users dislike cookies, feeling that cookies invade the users' privacy. Cookies also accumulate over time. So there are programs that will reliably delete cookies from your computer without harming the harddrive. As to how many cookies there can be or might be, the number on your computer depends on how many different websites you visit in a day, week, month, or year. If you use the Internet a lot and browse a lot, you probably have accumulated a lot of cookies.
