Is Local Storage data human readable?

Q1: When I save data via the Local Storage plugin, is it stored in a human readable format?

For example, if I save the current level the player is on via Local Storage,
say key "level" = value "3",
is there now a file somewhere that, you can open in a text editor, and see a line like "level = 3"?


Q2: Regarding human readability, Is there a difference between using Local Storage from a browser, vs a desktop (NW.js) platform.

I've found what I think is the location Local Storage data would go (for NW.js at least),
"%AppData%\Local\<GameName>\Cache",
but what I see is a bunch of hashilly-named files most of which are 1KB.
None of it looks human readable, but I don't know if I'm looking in the right place.
I'm just going by a comment Ashley made in another post.

Any help is appreciated. :)
