What methods do people use to automatically save changes to a text field in the background, without interrupting the user?


Let's say the user is entering a few paragraphs a large text field. I'd like to capture their work every few seconds and allow them to recover a draft if they leave the form or if they get disconnected while composing.


Is there a common approach for this?
