Google Chrome and Firefox Enhances Your Search Experience

By | June 17, 2011 | 7 Comments

Recently, Google has announced a couple of interesting new features for its search engine designed to enrich the overall experience.

The first one is called “Search by Image” which allows Google Chrome and Firefox (extension is required) users to search by using an image.

All you have to do is drag and drop the picture into the search box and that’s it, Google will figure out the rest (including location) and display somewhat relevant search results.

However, the second one looks more useful. Available in Google Chrome Dev only, a feature called “Instant Pages” will pre-render the search results that are likely to be clicked. Depending on your connection, you can either reduce or pretty much eliminate the loading times.

      I can still use TinEye for finding bigger and modified images, it’s a different functionality.

    So when Opera finally gets Instant, Chrome and Firefox get Search by Image and Instant Pages. What insolence.

    Instead of creating separate extension why they can’t use Adobe Flash to create this functionality.

      Because if Steve says flash is dead then it is.

      But why would you want it as flash when the world is trying to move away from it?
