If you are a regular Internet user, I am sure you must have built up a long list of cookies by now. This may be harming your browser performance even. If so, no problem! You can get your browser back in action by deleting all these cookies at once or individually for some websites.

Before proceeding any further, let me get this word – COOKIES known to you. Cookies are a small piece of data that is stored on your computer as small text files. It is placed in your browser by certain websites for saving your login preferences or tracking the pages you view on their site.

Although not harmful, cookies do build up over time and slow down your browser performance. Thankfully, Apple offers a simple way for removing these cookies from your iPad all at once or individually.

Nowadays, using cookies has become a common practice for many websites. If you do not like visiting such websites you can remove them all. Here’s how.
