IndexedDB will replace Web SQL database? Web SQL database will die
before birth?

(Surely you could have phrased the question in a more coherent and/or less trolly fashion?)

IndexedDB and WebSQLDatabase are more or less direct competitors, but they're coming at the problem fairly differently.  In addition WebSQLDatabase has a pretty big head start on IndexedDB (whose spec is evolving so quickly that what Mozilla released in Firefox 4 b1 is already pretty out of date).  I think only time will tell how everything will settle out in the long term.  I wouldn't count either technology out yet.
