FWIW: The hybrid mobile platform (Phonegap, et al.) would be
nothing without the Webstorage APIs

- localStorage - persistent  key/value pairs
- sessionStorage - temporal expiring key/value pairs
- indexedDB - Better support for key/value pairs - using files (or stores)
- websql - (crippled version of SQLite)

for the unknowing - until recently - "cookies" were not available,
and the use was frowned upon. At this point, there are too
many noobes - "cookies" are available as plugins.
