Even before this change, data in IndexedDB was kind of volatile - if a device was low on space, browsers could delete stored data.

https://dexie.org/docs/StorageManager describes the StorageManager API which lets you prompt the user to allow your IndexedDB data to be stored more reliably. My first thought after reading this article was wondering if this would allow an exception to the 7 day rule... but then I remembered that Safari is the only "modern" browser which does not support the StorageManager API
