    Default Are they sending list of downloads to google servers, or what?

    automatic blocking of known malware files
    I wonder if they're sending lists of downloaded files (or their hashes) to google servers to check if file is known bad. Is it another NSA spyware from Google? Or I'm just too suspicious about these NSA footpads aka Google?

    I hope that it's the other way around. I.E. get a list of known virus infected files from anti-virus software providers (or their checksums, really), include that with Chrome (or let chrome grab the list occasionally), and then anytime you download something, check that file against the list.

    It COULD be the other way around: Every time a file is downloaded, get the checksum and then check with google if the file is ok.

    I don't know which way it really is, but I would prefer the 1st option. That being said, I only have chrome installed as a browser to test web development again, and use Firefox as my primary (except on my android phone).
