Google has been paying attention to its forums, which has been riddled with reports of Chrome falling victim to browser hijacking malware. Google responded with two new browser features.
The first is a “reset browser settings” button. Under the “Advanced Settings” section you will find this button which will set your browser back to its original defaults at the time of installation.
The second security enhancement will automatically block downloads of malware. This feature, which is available currently in Chrome Canary, will soon be part of all versions of Chrome. A message will appear at the bottom of your screen which you can dismiss.
Of course this is in addition to Chromes’ Safe Browsing feature which flags nearly 10,000 new dangerous websites every day.
