Resetting the cookies for a website removes any temporary Internet files from that website that are stored on your computer. Cookies are small files exchanged between your computer and a website's server to optimize that site to your personal needs. It's a good idea to wipe the cookies clean every so often to ensure you are viewing the most recent version of a page. Once you reset the cookies, the Craigslist site will appear as it did the first time you visited it.
