It's just that back then your browser would save the cookie behind the scenes and not even tell you about it until your hard drive filled up and your computer started to run slower as a result. Nowadays browsers or whatever warn you that a site is trying to save a cookie and you're like "the hell is this shit?"

I suppose they can be used for more nefarious ends, but... welcome to the internet, smart phones, and online banking.
