As Google explains in a blog post, the Safe Browsing feature works by analyzing websites and creating lists of those deemed risky and deceptive.

Google has introduced two new features to its Chrome web browser, which are aimed at protecting users from deceptive websites on the internet.

In addition, Google is also rolling out a new extension for Google Chrome whose role is specifically to allow power users to report domains that they think could be included in a phishing attack.

He later said he also supported plans to boycott the company if it moved its manufacturing overseas. According to Harley, it will be introduced elsewhere in Asia after the initial launch in China.

Named the Suspicious Site Reporter, this extension adds an icon to the Google Chrome toolbar that when pressed, opens a popup window from where users can file an automatic report for the current site they're on, and which they suspect might be up to no good. One is a new Suspicious Site Reporter extension for Chrome and the other one is the ability to track down deceptive sites. You won't see any immediate change, but as with reporting spam in Gmail, your actions can become part of useful crowdsourced data that helps Google and anyone using Safe Browsing.

With the help of the just-launched Suspicious Site Reporter Chrome extension, users and security experts alike will be able to help Google constantly improve Safe Browsing by sending in not only the URL but a screenshot, the DOM content (including full HTML), and the referrer chain. For example, it's easy to type in go0gle.com instead of google.com and hackers sometimes take advantage of this to fool users into believing they're on the right website.

Google has announced a couple of new protections for users of Chrome browser, as the company wants to lower the likelihood of users landing on phishing websites. The company states that this feature works by comparing the URL of the webpage you're now on with URLs of the webpages you've visited recently. It will also ask them to visit the correct website. If the URL looks similar, but could be trying to confuse you, then the warning page will appear to double-check that you're entering the desired website.
