It’s an important topic and I wanted to dedicate a whole page about it and explain how SoaPatrick.com deals with this issue.

A cookie is a small piece of data or a text file that is downloaded to your computer or mobile device when you access certain websites. Cookies may contain text that can be read by the web server that delivered the cookie to you. The text contained in the cookie generally consists of a sequence of letters and numbers that uniquely identifies your computer or mobile device; it may contain other information as well.
There are NO cookies created on this website (unless you’re logged in, but since no registration is allowed, this only applies to me).
localStorage is part of the web storage API, and is a tool to save key/value pairs locally. localStorage offers advantages compared to using cookies:
- The data is saved locally only and can’t be read by the server, which eliminates the security issue that cookies present.
- It allows for much more data to be saved (10Mb for most browsers).
- It’s simpler to use and the syntax is very straightforward.
I use LocalStorage to save the users Theme Settings. Three values are saved and can be deleted by clearing your cache.
- theme: light or dark
- color: amber, red, pink, purple, blue or green
- nav: left or right
Unless you change the theme or the navbar position of the website, these values will not be created in your LocalStorage.
