1. November 2010, the W3C announced the deprecation of WebSQL specification, causing web developers around the world to mourn. To those comfortable with relational databases, WebSQL seems to be a natural fit for offline storage. On the other hand, IndexedDB - WebSQL's successor - can appear unruly by only supporting asynchronous API (for now) and missing many commonly used features such as joins, aggregation methods, multiple conditions.
