The IndexedDB database is a relatively new, in the sense that it replaced the older (W3C deprecated) Web SQL database. The IndexedDB web database allows your HTML5 web application to store data associated with a host/protocol/port, locally on the client’s hard-drive. Unlike LocalStorage, which lets you store data using a simple key-value pair only, the IndexedDB is more powerful and useful for applications that requires you to store a large amount of data. In addition, with its rich queries abilities, these applications can load faster and more responsive than having to perform a server side transaction and send the result to be displayed within the client’s html dropdown for example.
