Google had already deployed the warning system to alert users of its Chrome browser that they were about to enter a site distributing unwanted software. The Mountain View, California, company just recently began to feed the security information into a broader "safe browsing" application that also works in Apple's Safari and Mozilla's Firefox browsers.
As it is, Google says it discovers more than 50,000 malware-infected sites and more than 90,000 phishing sites per month.

I have Trend Micro and Blur on Firefox that warns me about malicious sites. This sounds like a very helpful move on Google's part, but why can't they just delete these sites from their browser altogether?
These protection algorithms are far from perfect and sometimes when a valid site has been attacked it is better to see the warning than have it ignored.
I get warned when going to my own blog FFS. I have run every scan and inspected the full html and css manually and have no idea why.
