LocalStorage objects

HTML5 LocalStorage is client-side storage introduced by HTML5 and supported by all major browsers. Data stored there is not sent automatically by the browser (unlike HTTP cookies) but is accessible to JavaScript code permanently, until deleted by the application or cleaned manually by the user. These object can be thus compared to first-party persistent cookies from privacy point of view.
