I had the same problem some time ago when I needed a simple key/value 
storage. I went with SQLite (see 
but I'd love to move my abstraction layer to IndexedDB, since it's more 
low-level, and would be better suited. SQL is overkill for me.

What I mean is: go for IndexedDB, and make it accessible from JS Code 
Modules, and it'll be a win for a lot of people!
