In The Cloud: Azure Portal and HTML5 Storage Capacity Exceeded

While preparing blog posts last week, the following message appeared in my browser window. I was in the Azure portal when the message appeared. It’s not an error with Azure or the browser. It could happen when using any website or browser. I tried again and everything was fine. The browser had many tabs open for days. A lot of things had been done in the browser.

Because technical training is part of what I do from time to time, I saw this as a good educational opportunity. I think all technically oriented web users are aware of cookies. HTML5 has something different called localStorage and sessionStorage. If you’re interested in learning more about this, I highly recommend reading this from W3 Schools.

Seeing the message is a very rare event. My point in posting this is not about the message per se, but to make you aware of the modern storage features of HTML5.
