@REMY SHARP – Before Safari 4 no version of Safari supported Web Storage, but Safari 3.1+ have supported Web Databases, so sometimes you might need to combine solutions to get the widest possible browser support. Also, if you have written a backend in a language like PHP to store data in Mysql, and you want to port it to JavaScript to run client side and offline, it is certainly easier to do with web databases since you can use the same queries. Just a thought.
