Microsoft Launches Windows Defender Extension for Google Chrome

Recommended Posts

Interesting,  I don't use Chrome but Malwarebytes launched a beta extension for Firefox a few months ago which I do have running.

Is this a sign that AVs are becoming browser extensions?

That does make some sense, most attacks come through your browser or downloads from your browser.

I think an interesting development is that Intel will be stopping malware on the hardware level with integrated GPU's (although hardware antivirus/anti-malware has already existed for awhile now but has always been very expensive):

True, but it is not a browser extension like the one mentioned above :)

You may note that one of the screenshots there shows "Malwarebytes for Chrome (Beta)". Yes they have now released an add on for Chrome as well.
