jQuery plugin for caching forms using HTML5 local storage

Have you ever started filling out a form or blog post only to have your session to expire or your browser to crash losing all of your work in the process? HTML5 introduced the concept of browser storage mechanisms. HTML5 storage has the ability to store string values in either local or session variables. The localStorage variable can persists across sessions and can be of any size. This behavior is similar to a cookie, however it does not suffer from the same limitations.
