comment Where is the 'Where from' meta data stored when downloaded via Chrome?
From the first few bytes, "bplist", I guessed it was a binary plist, so here's how to decode it using Apple's tools for reading those: xattr -p com.apple.metadata:kMDItemWhereFroms "$file" | xxd -r -p | plutil -convert xml1 -o - -. If you want to get the URL(s) (most files seem to have two) out on their own, the proper thing to use at this point would be either some general XML tool (like xpath) or some plist-specific tool (can't help you there). (Tested on 10.8.5.)
