Google Chrome is one of the most exciting web browsers, simply because of the numerous features that are pushed by google via regular updates. Every now and then the web goes abuzz about interesting new features that are being added into Chrome.

Most people receive the updates instantly as Chrome automatically updates itself every time you launch it. This process happens in the browsers background and once the update is installed, you will just have to restart Chrome.

As expected, unsuspecting users fell into this trap and downloaded malware infested executable files. However as of now, this is not a problem anymore as Chrome will automatically warn you before you visit a malware infected webpage.
