How to Enable or Disable DOM Storage “Cookies” in Internet Explorer/Firefox?

DOM Storage is usually equated with HTTP cookies. Just like cookies, Web developers can stack away per-session or domain-specific information as name/value pairs on the client by utilizing DOM Storage. Nonetheless, different from cookies, DOM Storage transforms it much easier to control how data stored by one browser window is visible to another.

DOM Storage is constituted of two main parts:

1) In Session Storage, any data given as input is stacked away for the time-period of the session. Thus, if a new tab is opened up, the information from the Session in the first tab is stacked away for the new tab.

2) Local Storage, ranges across several windows and stays outside of the present session. Local Storage permits Web applications to stack away upto 10 MB of user information. This could also include the data stored offline for reading later.
