What is the domain "safebrowsing-cache.google.com" used for?

A user on my network has a ton of hits to the address safebrowsing-cache.google.com. Is it a proxy to bypass the network filter or is it a Google cache?

"Safe Browsing is a service from Google that helps fighting the spam and phishing sites by blocking them in the browser.

When you go to a site, it's checked by Google. If it's returned as problematic, you get a warning in the browser.

Safe Browsing is integrated in Google Chrome and in the Google Toolbar."
