This is part of Safari’s newish support for a database storage feature that’s part of the HTML 5 spec.
This message pops up twice for every page load on the InfusionSoft “ideas website“. Here’s an idea: stop asking to store a megabyte on my computer on every goddamn page load. Technically this is the fault of UserVoice, but I don’t miss many chances to make fun of amateurs like InfusionSoft (and hey, it’s their logo on the page right?).
I finally caved and accepted the databases so I could inspect them and see what was so important that I had to be asked twice on every page load… It’s to use a library called PersistJS. Only they aren’t really using the tables for anything, other than creating them and keeping basic session data. Session data that would easily fit in the 4KB limit of a cookie. In fact there is also a cookie set that contains the same exact data. Good thing we have those databases!
