If you've ever been saved from visiting a virus-laden website by Chrome's malware-blocking technology, we have good news: You can expect to see this safeguard in other apps, too. Google has added tools for spotting "unwanted software" to its Safe Browsing developer kit, so any program can stop rogue web downloads. It'll take a while before you see this show up elsewhere, but don't be surprised if future apps with built-in web viewers are smart enough to raise a red flag.
