What is WebSQL & why should FF support it?

(dated) Implement WebSQL as a WebExtensions interface
Fire 750, bring back 250.

I've been trying to give every bug a priority following the new Bugzilla triage guidelines and P5 seems the most appropriate.

A group of contributors discussed this bug and followed up on this bug as a result. We outlined some thinking onto the wiki page. We did not close this bug for the simple reason: we don't believe that everyone on our team knows everything and we could have been wrong earlier this year when we started on the WebExtensions project and spent a few minutes reviewing this bug.

I'll repeat those comments here:

* Concerns about WebSQL as not a successful standard.
* No overwhelming reason to support this.
* There are already many libraries that exist outside of WebExtensions wrap around IndexedDB and give developers access to sane APIs. Local forage is one example.
* Concerns about maintenance of such an API.

After 9 months no-one else has commented on wanting this API and multiple people have suggested that it would be a bad idea.

Perhaps just marking this a WONTFIX would be more appropriate at this point.

Looks to be dead in the water

Mozilla Corporation were one of the major voices behind the break-up of negotiations and deprecation of the standard, while at the same time being the main proponents behind an 'alternative storage' standard, IndexedDB.
