Re: Just released: lz-string

chrome.storage.local is storage API available to Chrome apps and extensions.

You can find documentation here: http://developer.chrome.com/apps/storage.html

Unlike localStorage, it's async. It's still limited to 5MB.

Good news is that I've managed to cut down my data to ~3.7M *characters* which,

using LZString compresses down to 10% (w00t). Bad news is, when I call

chrome.storage.local.getBytesInUse, returned number is ~2.5M *bytes* which,

if correct, suggests chrome.storage.local implementation doesn't just store what it

receives but transforms it somehow such that much of the compression magic gets

diffused. It could be that localStorage does the same.
