Support for that is very limited and they have stopped working on it.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Web_SQL_Database  This tutorial shows the database size being declared in every page: http://www.tutorialspoint.com/html5/html5_web_sql.htm  The Final Example page works in Safari, Chrome, and Opera but not in Firefox.

I did not see any way to get the size of the database.

Dear Sir,
Thanks for your attention
I searched a lot for same but no output

I am going to do this in the below way, need little guidance from you side

In any browser 1 character=1 byte. So for this first I'll count total no. of characters exists in first table , then from second , an so on and finally add them and can get the total size of content exist in complete web sql database.

Please suggest on the above mentioned method. This might be lengthy but work as good alternative.

Also provide me more simpler way to do this or integrate this.

That method can get you an approximation of the database size... except that it can not account for the overhead required to organize the data.
