Storage Foundation API is a storage API that resembles a very basic filesystem, with direct access to stored data through buffers and offsets. Our goal is to give developers flexibility by providing generic, simple, and performant primitives upon which they can build higher-level components. It's particularly well suited for Wasm-based libraries and applications that want to use custom storage algorithms to fine-tune execution speed and memory usage.

Goals for experimentation
In general, we would like to validate the whole surface of our API against developer expectations and more diverse use cases. In particular, we are interested in confirming that we provide the required performance to allow new uses, and to shed light on developer preference between a synchronous and asynchronous surface.
Reason this experiment is being extended
Ongoing technical constraints
Will this feature be supported on all six Blink platforms (Windows, Mac, Linux, Chrome OS, Android, and Android WebView)?YesYes
