Re: HTML local storage hole - GDPR fails?

As a dev who spends some time on front-end... LocalStorage can be useful.

As long as browsers treat them as the same thing (e.g. "Clear cookies and site data" in my FF; or similar rules for 3rd party cookies as 3rd party localstorage) it doesn't make the tracking situation any worse than you already have with cookies.
