I've found one of the best uses for (local|session)Storage is just to cache data. If you have a data set that is going to remain static for the entire application session but still needs to be fetched asynchronously, sessionStorage is great for caching it (unless it somehow contains sensitive data of course...).
Exactly! I love it for that. This is what I use it for as well.

We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
