HTML5 is a markup language used for structuring and presenting content on the World Wide Web. It is the fifth and last
major HTML version that is a World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) recommendation. The current specification is known as the HTML Living Standard. It is maintained by a consortium of the major browser vendors (Apple, Google, Mozilla, and Microsoft), the Web Hypertext Application Technology Working Group (WHATWG).
HTML Web Storage Objects
HTML web storage provides two objects for storing data on the client:
- window.localStorage - stores data with no expiration date
- window.sessionStorage - stores data for one session (data is lost when the browser tab is closed)
