my argument is that localstorage and session storage aren't the same thing,
excerpt from scirra manual:
"Local vs. Session storage
The WebStorage object allows data to be stored in two places: Local storage and Session storage.
Local storage is permanent (until the user clears their cache). If the user comes back the next day, local storage still has the saved data.
Session storage only lasts with the current browser session. If the user comes back the next day, session storage is empty again."
hence they removed functionality and claims it's an improvement.
i couldnt care less if the replaced the plugin with one that has same functionality, but this wasn't the case.
and to build functionality that is part of the html5 stack isn't really productive.
