It looks like X3DOM or Firefox can save work (with File -> Save Page As ..).    I did notice that the canvas appeared to be a different size in the saved copy (but didn't check into the details).  In the application I'm working on, it saves the state (cubes) that I have on the screen, and it continues where I left off.

I thought that HTML5 introduced the idea of local storage.   Also a web browser can be a standalone application.

Yeah, I've got to look into IndexedLineSet.
