?The warning will be displayed for any download URL that corresponds to the most recent list of malicious sites published by the Safe Browsing API,? explained Google. ?The new feature follows the same privacy policy currently in use by the secure browsing feature. For example, this feature does not allow Google to determine which URLs you are visiting ?.

Before making it available to the entire Chrome user base, the company plans to deploy a trial period in Chrome Beta and then release the new functionality for the stable version.
