Pixolu: Search for Similar Images Using an Image

In case you are confused after reading the title, that is what exactly Pixolu does. It’s an image search engine which lets you go deeper into the mechanism of image search and lets you find more relevant images using the image results it displays the first time you search. It uses Google, Flickr and Yahoo as the underlying image search engines.
