Mozilla announces the upcoming Firefox 2.0 browser will feature an anti-phishing module from Google:
Anti-phishing capability, which Mozilla has branded "Safe Browsing," is one of the marquee features in Firefox 2.0 and one of the reasons a third alpha is necessary. Now baked into Firefox 2.0 alpha 3, Google Safe Browsing is triple-licensed under the Mozilla Public License (MPL) 1.1, the GPL 2.0 (define) and the LGLP (define).

It is also built into the Google Toolbar, which is available for both Firefox and IE.
