Googles Safe Browsing API is almost a living organism, constantly evolving and adapting to online threats.

On Wednesday, Google announced the latest enhancements to the service, with new features that protect users on the web from deceptive embedded content.

You may have encountered social engineering in a deceptive download button, or an image ad that falsely claims your system is out of date, said Google engineer Lucas Ballard. Were expanding Safe Browsing protection to protect you from such deceptive embedded content, like social engineering ads.

Google SafeBrowsing might start becoming more efficient than Antivirus and Antimalware in order to block malicious webpages if it continues like this.

It's not unusual now for me to see Google SafeBrowsing showing a website as malicious when I upload suspicious sites and IPs that I gather from the firewall we use at work. Google SafeBrowsing, SOPHOS, Bitdefender and ESET are usually the first one on them.

This is good indeed, looks like it's heading towards similar levels of protection as noscript, though I'll still be using noscript for a long whle yet i'm sure.
