Where does Google Chrome for Linux store user specific data such as bookmarks ? I can't find a .chrome or .google directory under my home directory, any other directory I should look at ?

I think it stores in ~/.config/google-chrome or ~/.config/chromium. Though i have it inside the first location! Check for the Default folder under this location, more specifically.

Yup - it was at ~/.config/google-chrome/Default. Thanks for the quick reply! – Sathya Oct 7 '09 at 20:01

Where is it located in Ubuntu 11.10? – user105131 Nov 12 '11 at 16:35

It is usually in ~/.config/google-chrome/Default/Bookmarks, where "Default" is its way of dealing with usernames and different possible sessions. Granted, it could also be in ~/.config/chromium/Default/Bookmarks.
