Its a new HTML5 API offering important benefits for storing data in a web browser. It is more secure and faster. The data is stored in key/value pairs.

It offers two different storage areas

1) Local storage - Data placed in local storage is per domain and persists after the browser is closed.

2) Session storage- Data placed in session storage is for one session.(within the browser tab or window session)
