Indexed DB

Using Indexed DB in HTML5

Indexed DB is a feature by which you can make a small database on the browser or client-side computer. As in general, the databases are maintained on the backend server, this feature is a path breaking one. However, it is not purposeful for a large scale application. The purpose of Indexed DB is to maintain a small database on the browser for a small period of time till some intermediate work of entering data is in progress. When all the work is finished then data needs to be pushed to the backend (ie, when the process or calculations are complete). This is a very useful feature for reducing multiple hits to the database or backend throughout the user interaction and dumping data only once when all the work is completed. This reduces the hits on the backend and makes user interactions rapid and fair-paced.
