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.|
|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.|
