Quoting from
Indexed Database API 2.0
W3C Proposed Recommendation, 16 November 2017

This version:
Latest published version:


This document defines APIs for a database of records holding simple 
values and hierarchical objects. Each record consists of a key and some 
value. Moreover, the database maintains indexes over records it stores. 
An application developer directly uses an API to locate records either 
by their key or by using an index. A query language can be layered on 
this API. An indexed database can be implemented using a persistent 
B-tree data structure.
