Client side storage using Dojo
This is really cool. Ajaxian ran a story about a new capability built into the Dojo framework that provides persistent client-side storage. There's even a link to a demo app. Although it has some limited use because, frankly, I want my Web apps to work on every machine I use (yes I'm a geek I'm in front of at least 2 machines at all times), this opens up some cool possibilities.
It even does a pretty nifty trick of deciding the most appropriate storage mechanism for the client, with multiple options including cookies, flash, and IE-specific. I'm envisioning using this for Live Clipboard 2.0, in fact it could even work like the MS Office clipboard where you're able to hold more than one object/text chunk a time. Groovy.
IDEA: Could we keep a security token there?
