Reasons to use/not use HTML local storage?

Ah, got it. So, while the HTML local storage can help with session storage, the main goal was for client-side consent storage.

But there's no way to use HTML local storage just for consent and not for sessions, right? That is cookies for sessions and HTML local (where available) for consent?

But the topic here is really local storage. The main purpose of that is storing consent records, not logout.
