Hi, I tried a couple of searches and couldn't find a post that compared these 2 forms of storage. I was using sessionStorage in my script to remember information from a Db, but as I was reviewing variable properties and scope, I said to myself Why should I involve sessionStorage when I can just assign the info to a global variable which is accessable to the whole website and goes away when you leave the website, just like a session variable. Is this correct? Are the global variables not as reliable or something? What are the differences, similarities; and what can you recommend to me
