The new "Reset browser settings" button will revert Chrome back to its default search engine, removing any saved searches to their original settings, homepage button and any pinned tabs get removed, startup and new tab tabs cleared, cookies, site data, and content settings all get wiped, and finally, extensions and themes disabled.

 

Google is also pushing a new malware download blocking feature soon, which should help increase its browser's security.
