Web Storage provides a client-side method for saving session information. Web Storage is a new HTML5 API offering important benefits over traditional cookies. All major browsers support it. Cookie had data-capacity limitations of 4KB per cookie but web storage has a simple API to get and set key/value pairs and the storage depends on the browser settings usually 5 to 10 MB per domain. The data being stored can be accessed using JavaScript. The web storage API provides following methods
