// On Chrome OS, the application locale is stored in local state prefs. The
// zygote needs the locale so it can load the correct resource bundle and
// provide localized strings to renderers. However, the zygote forks and engages
// the sandbox before the browser loads local state.
// Instead, cache the locale in a separate JSON file and read it on zygote
// startup. The additional disk read on startup is unfortunately, but it's only
// ~20 bytes and this approach performs better than other approaches (passing a
// resource bundle file descriptor to zygote on renderer fork, or pre-load the
// local state file on startup). On coral (dual core Celeron N3350 1.1 GHz) the
// file read takes < 2.5 ms and the write takes < 1 ms.
