Where is data stored when using an HTML 5 Web SQL Database

I just read something about HTML 5 Web SQL Databases. I did a little search on here and Google but couldn't find a simple to the point answer.

Can someone tell me, where is the data stored when using this? In memory or a text file or something else?

Also what browsers support this?


It's stored in a SQLite database. Here is a browser support chart I found: .

That said, the W3C has officially dropped support for WebSQL in favor of IndexedDB. Here's the equivalent chart for that:

You may also want to look at DataJS, which is a library that abstracts some of the details of local storage and works across browsers:

Hope that helps.
