// This binary is a workaround for Windows 10 start menu pinning icon bug:
// When a shortcut is pinned in the Windows 10 start menu Windows will follow
// the shortcut, find the target executable, look for a <target>.manifest file
// in the same directory and use the icon specified in there for the start menu
// pin. Because bookmark app shortcuts are shortcuts to Chrome (plus a few
// command line parameters) Windows ends up using the Chrome icon specified in
// chrome.VisualElementsManifest.xml instead of the site's icon stored inside
// the shortcut.
// The chrome_proxy.exe binary workaround "fixes" this by having bookmark app
// shortcuts target chrome_proxy.exe instead of chrome.exe such that Windows
// won't find a manifest and falls back to using the shortcut's icons as
// originally intended.
