evercookie has some really interesting client side storage techniques.

One of those techniques is to actually abuse the browser cache itself by:

Storing cookies in RGB values of auto-generated, force-cached PNGs using HTML5 Canvas tag to read pixels (cookies) back out

I have no idea what storage limits are on the browser cache itself, therefore experimentation is needed.

In addition to the storage tricks used by ever cookie, I have an additional suggestion here: samyk/evercookie#30 basically abusing appcache with jsonp scripts and/or iframe'ing to an html5 offline page, which only contains a json string from the server

If you want to, you can make a custom adapter. There are already people working on bridge cache adapters to be backed by RESTAdapter and LocalStorage/IndexDB. Closing the issue as it seems unlikely that something like that would become part of ember-data.
