Google's Matt Cutts said on Google+:

Part of my job involves collaborating with the people at Google who detect malware, phishing, or unsafe downloads. They're a fantastic group of folks, and I'm incredibly proud that Google provides a free Safe Browsing API that Chrome, Firefox, and Safari all use.
