Importance of digital forensics is expected to increase in the future. Many of researches on digital forensics are targeted to persistent memory. These researches concerns about the extraction of evidence directly or via filesystem. On the other hand, there is a movement to employ the Web browser supports HTML5 as software platform. In this situation, it is considered that the forensics techniques for extracting evidences from HTML5 browser is important. In this paper, we experimented to retrieve the artifacts left by Web- Storage feature for the Web browser for personal computer from the file system. In addition, we implemented a tool that constructs and visualizes the evidence from the artifacts.
