The file is Web Data. The location is:

Win Vista/7: %localappdata%\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default

Win 2k/XP: %userprofile%\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Web Data

*nix: ~/.config/google-chrome

Mac: ~/Library/Application Support/Google/Chrome/Default

It's an sqlite3 database, so you'll need to have an sqlite tool to edit it.

Yup, it is indeed in Web Data and it is not easily editable, even with a database tool. Believe it or not, it is much easier just to use the official interface. :-| – Synetech Jul 9 '12 at 19:02
