Would Malwarebytes Browser Guard be advisable, alongside a content blocker, for the average consumer user?
I would say this get covered by:
  • Install an ad blocker in Chrome
  • Enable Enhanced Safe Browsing in Chrome

Chromebooks are harden so a exploit risk is very low and generally attack surface is low too.
I wouldn't decrease that with browser extensions

In the Mobile MRA, Chromebook users are prone to adware/miners/popups. It remains unclear whether they were using Enhanced SB in the first place.

Additionally, if users are unsure about it's effectiveness, and prefer a known, trusted vendor such as Malwarebytes, wouldn't that be advised and acceptable.

Or is it suggested by Chromebook boffins that it is Enhanced Safe Browsing, or none at all.
