Abstract

In this chapter, we will explore what you can do with HTML5 Web Storage—sometimes referred to as DOMStorage—an API that makes it easy to persist data across web requests. Before the Web Storage API, remote web servers needed to store any data that persisted by sending it back and forth from client to server. With the advent of the Web Storage API, developers can now store data directly on the client side in the browser for repeated access across requests or to be retrieved long after you completely close the browser, thus reducing network traffic.
