I was wondering where I could find the settings for extensions in Google Chrome so I can create a symbolic link to synchronize the information w/ Dropbox until Google offers an official solution. It'd give me great peace of mind as a Greasemonkey developer!

I'm on Mac OS 10.6.7 Snow Leopard.

They are stored in the Local Storage area of the User Data folder:

  • Mac OS X: ~/Library/Application Support/Google/Chrome/Default/Local Storage/

  • XP: C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Local Storage\

  • Vista/7: C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Local Storage\

  • Linux: ~/.config/google-chrome/Default/Local Storage/

The files (SQLite) are each named:
chrome-extension_<an alpha code of some sort>_0.localstorage.
