Google will active player?

Today Google had announced the Safe Browsing API, that allow external developers to use database of phishing & malware resources. As example, they show plugin for Firefox web-browser, that check addresses against this database.
Such active deployment of their technologies, could make Google very serious player on the market of content-filtering and information security. Companies, that sell url categorization databases, may loss part of their income.
It will be interesting to implement plugin, that will use this API in open-source projects, such as, Squid or Dansguardian.
