Thanks for this piece, Christian. I’ve seen tons of vague references to local storage, and it’s great to read a piece that can explain it well. But …

I agree with José, that it seems like relying on local storage hamstrings much of what makes web apps useful. Is there a way to get the benefits of local storage while sending the data in the background to an offsite database? That way you’d get the speed benefits of local storage while getting the “accessible anywhere” benefits of offsite storage.
