Only 5mb in IE8 DOM Local Storage? RRS feed

  • Question

  • According to http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc197062(VS.85).aspx, DOM Local Storage “…allows Web applications to store nearly 10 MB of user data”.

    I clear my entire history, made sure that I have nothing stored to window.localStorage, and have the following JS function called on page load:

        function
     LoadLocalStorageData()
        {   
            var
     storage = window.localStorage;
            alert(storage.remainingSpace);      
        }
    

    The JS alert shows "5000000".  What happened to the other 5mb?
