I read about this the other month but the stable version of chrome has just been released with a handy new feature. Now you can set chrome to block website redirects. You may have seen these when your on a website and suddenly the website changes to something like a fake virus warning. Now you can prevent this from happening although it isn't apparently enabled by default for every user but it appears the plan is to at some point have it set as enabled by default. You can however enable it - copy and paste this into chrome's navigation bar chrome://flags/#enable-framebusting-needs-sameorigin-or-usergesture

Then use the drop down menu of the highlight part and select enabled. It obviously doesn't prevent people from being phished and common sense and good security practises will always help but I do think this will be handy.
