This article will let us know about the difference between local storage and session storage and why it is a very relevant topic to know about.
|Criteria||Local Storage||Session Storage|
|Read Property:||Local storage is a read-only property that provides access to the document's local storage object, and the stored data is stacked up across browser sessions.
||Session storage can be accessed using the session storage read-only property.
|Page Expirations:||Local storage data is not expired.
||Session storage data is often cleared as soon as the page session ends.
|Session Duration:||Local storage lasts until it is deleted or the user deletes it.
||Session storage is accessible only when the window created is still open and lasts until the user deletes it.
|Usage:||Local storage is used for long-term use.
||Session storage is used when we need to store something that changes are temporary.
|Storage:||Local storage maintains a separate storage area for each given origin that is available for the duration of the page session but remains open even when the browser is closed and reopened.
||Session storage does the same thing, but it only happens if the browser is still open, including page reloads and restores.
||Session storage stores data only for the session, which will be available until the browser or tab is closed.
|Storage Limit:||Local storage's storage limit is the maximum of the two.
||The session storage limit is more significant than a cookie, almost 5MB.|
