    I was just on tweakguides and noticed an article stating that

    "Google Warns On Unsafe Websites
    7 August 2006

    Google has taken to Warning Users of its search engine if they click on a link which leads to a site with known malware. A warning popup will appear stating 'The site you are about to visit may harm your computer'. To find out more about this, and to safely see an example of the popup, go to Stopbadware.org. I think this is a good idea - far too many sites intentionally harbor spyware and even serious malware."

    Has anyone else heard if this is true? If so I think google is owed a resounding thank you from us all.

    [edit] just noticed it on the BBC website as well :D
