I'm wondering if it's possible to recover files from the Google Chrome cache from an Android 4.0.2 phone. Specifically, a HTC One S.

I'm trying to recover the stylesheet from a site whose data has been partially lost, and of course this phone is the only device to have accessed it today before the crash.

Edit: What I ended up figuring out and doing was opening chrome://cache on the browser, and opening the cache entry from there which does actually show all of the cached file contents, albeit it shows it in both hexadecimal and ascii form, copying and pasting the whole thing into an email, and emailing it to myself. From there I just spent a bunch of time reformatting the file back into something useable with a text editor.
