HTML 5 storage

Interesting post about html 5 storage.

I’ve been a fan of sqlite for a long time now.  I’ve had my issues with it but I’m glad to see it going places.  I’m not sure if one of those places should be exposed to the web, the article mentions the attack surface problem.  I’ve never really dug into google gears but I’m guessing that has the same issues.

I’ve been using sql for even long and I’m definitely not a fan.  People might as well be using fortran.  Actually fortran would be better.  SQL is fine if you’re generating TPS reports but it just isn’t the right tool for web sites.  Most of the scalability problems on web sites that I’ve had the pleasure of fixing have sql as their root cause.  Storage is hard, let’s go shopping!

HTML 5 is really going to change the web as we know it.  I’ve done some dabbling with the canvas element and the video tag but I need to spend more time getting up to speed.  It is amazing how different web sites are today from what they were 4 or 5 years ago.  The pace of change is only going to accelerate.
