The Browser Database that Syncs
Based on the work of Apache CouchDB, PouchDB provides a simple API in which to store and retrieve JSON objects, due to the similiar API, and CouchDB's HTTP API it is possible to sync data that is stored in your local PouchDB to an online CouchDB as well as syncing data from CouchDB down to PouchDB (you can even sync between 2 PouchDB databases).
