6. Client-Side Data Storage Hacks

Chapter 6. Client-Side Data Storage Hacks

As the modern web browser continues to evolve into a capable application platform, another area of exciting advancements is occurring in client-side data storage, most notably in the AppCache, WebStorage, IndexedDB, and FileSystem API standards. The need for offline capabilities and performance improvements for reading and writing large amounts of data is driving browser manufacturers to build tools that allow client-side applications to define quotas on storage capacity, retrieve sandbox data to defined origins, and perform asynchronous reads/writes from local databases.
