[HDGEM] Web applications can store data locally within the user's browser with HTML Local Storage

Local storage is more secure, and large amounts of data can be stored locally


Before HTML5, application data had to be stored in cookies, included in every server request. Local storage is more secure, and large amounts of data can be stored locally, without affecting website performance.

Unlike cookies, the storage limit is far larger (at least 5MB) and information is never transferred to the server.

Local storage is per origin (per domain and protocol). All pages, from one origin, can store and access the same data.
