To mark the five-year anniversary of Google’s Safe Browsing effort, the company this week released a report quantifying the protection from malicious content it has provided users since committing to do so. This protection, the report says, extends not only to Google’s search results and ads, but also to popular web browsers such as Chrome, Firefox and Safari.  Google reports protecting 600 million users by flagging about 9,500 new malicious websites every day.  You can read the full report on the Google Online Security Blog.
