As the question says, can anybody give insights on how anti phishing works in Google Safe Browsing?

Does it just use a database of detected phishing URLs or does it use any heuristic?

Google Safe Browsing just checks against a database provided by Google if the visited URL is potentially malicious. There are no heuristics employed by the client using Google Safe Browsing but instead every intelligence is in the crawling and classification process done by Google.
