What is a LOCALSTORAGE file?

A LOCALSTORAGE file is an application support file created by web browsers that use WebKit, which include Google Chrome and Apple Safari. It may contain browser settings or local data for a browser extension (plug-in) and enables extensions to store a local cache of user data. LOCALSTORAGE files are saved in an SQLite database format and can be opened by SQLite programs.
