Just as an FYI, i posted this here because the form on the Web Storage spec
doesnt work. It says I don't have JS enabled, which obviously, I do. It then
sent me here... it was a feedback on the disk space section. I can post it
elsewhere, I just figured this was the kind of feedback you were looking
for...? If not, what kind of info are you looking for in those forms if its not
about the spec? Not at all trying to be sarcastic or an ass, actually curious.

Everyone says that it has to be synchronous but I honestly can't find that
anywhere in the spec. It could be async easily and I actually don't understand
why it couldnt?

Also, yes, obviously allowing 1GB or unlimited data on all sites wouldn't work,
but im just saying give the choice to the user. If, for example, photoshop.com
needed 10GBs of data I would give it to them as I need it for the site and I
know what its being used for. Now, if i go to some random site after googling
something and it asks to store that much I would say no. I dont see what the
issue is if its the user making the choice. Arent we making sites and browser
for our end users? IndexedDB, again, is nice and powerful, but so, so, so much
more complicated than localStorage. I'll learn it as it looks super cool, but
for most stuff it seems like its a little heavy.

Lastly, I know, I talked to the Chrome team awhile ago and, if you read my
blog, they basically just called the entire idea of raising it even 5MBs stupid
even tho all the other people aside from the Chrome team wanted it. They also
said localStorage in general was just a stupid idea, so when I saw the
suggestion box I thought it was the right place to do it. Sorry!
