For example, you use a system which automatically adds a product to the shopping cart once you load a specific URL. So, at first sight everything looks fine and the system is working perfectly well, however, there is one drawback: once a product is added to the shopping cart but the cart has not been updated yet on the client-side you will have no possibility to access user’s browser local storage.
