Discussion on: Using the Local Storage

Sorry, but this article could be a bit misleading to newbie devs. It doesn't describe that accessing localStorage could result in a SecurityError (thus robust web apps should wrap LS access in a try-catch or similar mechanism), and the size of LS is not always equal to 5 MiB (on older Androids it is smaller, for example).

It would be fair to provide a link to MDN:, which describes LS in greater details.

Session storage would be a better alternative also or no client side storage at all, even better, for legal and security reasons.
