I’m trying to make a form that saves the data when the user presses a button.
I’ve got a Flash app that calls an online php file in order to read some values of my SQL table.
I have the following code, and what I’m trying to do is save the chosen date and time with every button click to have a record of the previous inputs or sessions even after refreshing the page, additionally each session should be limited by 5 clicks tops.
I have a piece of code that is supposed to search a JSON array in localStorage and modify the

I want to reduce load times on my websites by moving all cookies into local storage since they seem to have the same functionality. Are there any pros/cons (especially performance-wise) in using local storage to replace cookie functionality except for the obvious compatibility issues?
Apart from being non persistent and scoped only to the current window, are there any benefits (performance, data access, etc) to Session Storage over Local Storage?
What are the technical pros and cons of
sessionStorage, session and
cookies, and when would I use one over the other?
