Google has upped the security on its Chrome browser to protect against increasing malware on the Internet. Chrome, as you know, already warns you if it feels that the webpage you plan on visiting can harm your computer. Now it is bringing these warnings to the Downloads section, along with a factory-reset button, in case you end up being exposed to a malware.

“In the current Canary build of Chrome, we’ll automatically block downloads of malware that we detect,” Google said in a blog post. “If you see (a) message in the download tray at the bottom of your screen, you can click “Dismiss” knowing Chrome is working to keep you safe.” Also Read - Timex Helix Smart 2.0 with temperature sensor, heart rate sensor launched: Details here
If Google detects that the new wallpaper, video plugin, screensaver or the “security update” you are downloading can harm your computer, it will immediately send across a warning message. If somehow you still manage to download something harmful, the new Reset button will revert Chrome to its factory settings. The reset button is placed under Advanced Settings section of the browser’s settings.
