Chrome Can Now Block Dodgy Software Downloads

Google Chrome HAS ALWAYS BEEN ABLE TO block dodgy software downloads (why the company didn't is another story). There, fixed that for you.

Google's Advanced Protection Program (APP) now offers members an extra layer of protection against dodgy downloads in Chrome. After activating Chrome Sync (a tool that saves bookmarks, passwords and other info to a Google account), APP members will see a warning if they attempt to download software that's potentially dangerous. In some cases, Chrome may block the download entirely.
