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.

Worried about 'Tracking Files'? Worried about why some files come back after cleaning? See this link:

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 :)

Here is information, and the download link, for the "Malwarebytes for Firefox (Beta)" add on for those who may be interested and/or want to try the Beta extension:

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.
