Search by image is a lot like TinEye search, since users can enter an image file into Google search, see where it came from and find out more about it. This is especially useful when you want to find out where memes started or find out who owns the copyright to an image.
To use the search by image service, users can either enter a URL, upload a file or drag and drop an image into the search. There’s also Chrome and Firefox extensions which allow users to right-click on images in order to search for them.
Google Voice Search is currently available only to users of Google Chrome 11 or higher. This could be handy for kids who aren’t good at spelling yet or people in the kitchen with their hands full. Check out this video of voice search in action.
Another new search feature available just to Chrome developers is Instant Pages. This works by Google pre-rendering the page for users, allowing them to interact with the page they searched for immediately. When this has been thoroughly tested it will be rolled into stable versions of Chrome. Meanwhile, Firefox users can stick to using tools like CoolPreview.
Obviously, by adding so many great features into search purely in Chrome, Google has made Chrome look just a little more tempting. Will you switch from Firefox? Why or why not?
