    - There are two objects provided by the HTML local storage for storing data on the client:

    - window.localStorage - It stores data with no expiration date
    - window.sessionStorage - It stores data for one session (data is lost when the browser tab is closed)

    localStorage Object
    - This object stores the data with no expiration date.
    - Whenever the browser is closed data will not be deleted, and will be available the next day, week, or year.

    sessionStorage Object
    - This object is equal to the localStorage object, except that it stores the data for only one session.
    - Whenever the user closes the specific browser tab data will be deleted.
