In that case you are talking about AIR, though, which is a different beast
from the Flash Player in terms of sandbox limitations. Within the browser
player you have limitations on how much data you can store in a shared
object before it prompts the user ( if I recall correctly it is 100kb) to
ask if it can use more. The ideal user experience would be that it happens
completely transparently to the user. In essence, it "just works".
