What are the different types of storage in HTML5?

February 22, 2014

HTML5 has the capability to store data locally. Previously, it was done with the help of cookies. The exciting thing about this storage is that it’s fast as well as secure.

 There are two different objects which can be used to store data:

 localStorage object stores data for a longer period of time even if the browser is closed.

sessionStorage object stores data for a specific session.
