The Web Storage API is an HTML browser-based API offering an alternative data storage method to cookies. An example use case is when a user may be completing multiple transactions in different windows with the same provider. To solve issues that arise with cookies, developers can use the Web Storage sessionStorage IDL attribute to store relevant information in a browser's session, enabling the same data to be dispersed across multiple pages that are accessing the same site in the same window. Furthermore, the localStorage IDL attribute can be used to store browser larger amounts of site-specific information accessible across multiple windows. The Web Storage API documentation comes in the form of an abstract written and edited by Google and W3C representatives.
The following is a list of historical changes that were made to this asset. Typically,
once an API is published on ProgrammableWeb.com, the data we keep about that asset gets updated over the course of its life. For example, the endpoint or home page of the documentation might change.
As a means of enforcing the integrity of our data, every time a non-trivial change is made to the data we keep about an asset,
we require the entry of some changelog text before that change can be saved. This way, we have a great audit trail of all
activity surrounding the asset. For each asset, the changelogs begins with the moment an asset is approved for publication on ProgrammableWeb.
If you spot an error in our data and believe that a record needs to be updated in some way,
