What can we do by cookies other than session tracking?

Thanks.

Store data at the client side like Javaranch does. It stores username and password. When you access JR next time cookies stored at the client can be used for sending username/password and you dont need to log in again.

Cookies can store some user preferences like Google search engine options ?

What do you mean by "hi-fi" usage? Cookies are pretty basic things, their sole purpose is to store data on the client machine.
