Both Firefox and Chrome offer users privacy features which will cause Web
Storage to be non-persistent across browser restart. For example Firefox has a
"Never remember history" option, and Chrome has a "clear cookies and other data
when I close my browser" option.

For an application developer, it would be helpful to know when such features
have been enabled, so that the application can inform the user, assist in
troubleshooting, or disable features that depend on persistent storage.
