Chrome version 64 will make downloads a lot faster

While most use web browser to, of course, browse the web, there will inevitably come a time when you need to download something off the web. And while most will probably just download some images or PDFs, there will also come a time when you’ll have to download something larger.

There is nothing more annoying in browsing the web, and more dangerous, that unwanted and unintended popups. Actually, there is a second thing that comes close to it: unwanted and unintended redirects. This has actually been malware distributors’ and scammers’ Plan B after popups have widely fallen out of fashion and rendered practically useless.

Fake Adblock Plus Chrome extension gets into official Web Store

Android is often criticized for having malware that gets passed Google's automated Play Store bouncer, but it is far from being the only Google-made platform to have such problems.
