           Summary: IndexedDB: Don't use strings to represent serialized
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 528+ (Nightly build)
          Platform: Unspecified
        OS/Version: Unspecified
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: New Bugs
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: michael at 68k.org

Strings are inappropriate for representing serialized values in IndexedDB; these serialized values are not Unicode character sequences and should instead be represented as byte arrays. While the V8 implementation of SerializedScriptValue uses String as its internal representation, the JSC implementation uses Vector<uint8_t>. Converting a Vector<uint8_t> to a String object only for IndexedDB to convert it back immediately to a Vector<char> is awkward and inefficient.
