Google Beefs Up Security for Chrome Browser Extensions

Google is making its Chrome browser even more secure by alerting users to the danger of installing third party apps and by adding a step directing the download through an extension page. Google is now also checking all of its own Web Store submissions for malicious extensions.

Google has put its own house into order after it initiated a program to analyze every extension uploaded to the Web Store. Those entries that are found to be suspect or malicious will be taken down to prevent security issues for users.
