    Avira Browser Safety - a highly recommended free extension available for both Google Chrome & Firefox browser(s), able to block malicious pages, with very fast reaction on emerging threats according to my experience. Note that you can combine it with your current AV product (please let me know if you found any conflicts), no need to switch to Avira.
    Thank you @silversurfer for making me aware of that great piece of software!

    EDIT: Above mentioned (newly added) tools have been added in my updated config above, thank you @guardian for the heads up and the quick unlock.
