Application support file created by the Web browsers that use WebKit, which include Google Chrome, Apple Safari, and others; may store browser settings or local data for a browser extension (plug-in); enables extensions to store a local cache of user data; saved in an SQLite database format and can be opened by SQLite programs.
Local storage is useful for extensions such as Chrome browser games. For example, the game Angry Birds stores saved game information in a LOCALSTORAGE file.

Chrome for Mac uses the following location for extension information:
~/Library/Application Support/Google/Chrome/Default/Local Storage/
