Google will add a malware alert into their Chrome browser increasing the security while surfing the Internet. This feature comes as an extension to the already popular Safe Browsing feature, which is a list of malicious sites integrated into the browser.
The source code of this new feature is based on a similar API from Google available for developers for two years now. Seems that the Malware Alert feature will scan the Safe Browsing database while accessing a desired site. An alert will be sent by the browser if an executable will be downloaded from these sites.
This feature is expected to be fully integrated in Chrome 12 which will appear in May or June this year.
