    Google announced today that it is in the process of rolling out an update for Chrome for Windows that improves the security of the web browser.

    Chrome news have hit a rough patch in recent months thanks to malicious extensions doing all sorts of negative things when they are installed on user systems.

    The new safety features that Google announced today don't remedy that situation, but they may help Chrome users on Windows in other ways.

    Philippe Rivard, Chrome Cleanup product manager at Google lists three improvements that Google added to Chrome to "help Chrome for Windows users recover from unwanted software infections".

    The first feature detects if Chrome settings have been changed without user consent. The browser displays information on those changes to the user, and it is up to the user to restore the original settings or to hit the cancel button to leave the settings as they are.
