Local Storage is just a part of the Web Storage api. HTML 5 has a feature that is supported even in IE 8 that allows web developers to store data locally without using cookies. The operating system on the computer provides tools directly to the applications for storing and retrieving data for the application. This information can be stored in .INI files, preference files, XML files, and many other places depending upon your operating system and the application you’re using. But web applications don’t have this type of storage. The closest thing we have to a local storage tool is a cookie. Using a cookie, web developers can store a small amount of information (typically no more than 4 KB). But the current HTML 5 Storage specification says that browsers should set a limit of 5MB per origin (host or domain).

The idea behind the Google Plus one is that you can quickly spot search engine results which have been promoted to people you trust. Each set of search results is then catered to individuals according to who they interact with in the real and virtual world. The +1 service will allow anyone with a Google Profile to “plus 1″ a page and add it to their profile page’s +1′s tab.
The Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) is a commonly-used protocol for managing the security of a message transmission on the Internet. TLS(Transport Layer Security ) and SSL encrypt the segments of network connections above the Transport Layer, using asymmetric cryptography for privacy and a keyed message authentication code for message reliability.
Each SSL Certificate consists of a public key and a private key to encrypt data ? a public key known to everyone and a private or secret key known only to the recipient of the message. The public key is used to encrypt information and the private key is used to decipher it. Many Web sites use the protocol to obtain confidential user information, such as credit card numbers. By convention, URLs that require an SSL connection start with https: instead of http
