Google introduces ‘Search by Image’

June 15, 2011

Google has introduced Search by Image, a new form of search that lets you upload an image to find similar images. For instance, you can upload vacation photos of monuments you don’t recall the names of, and images of that same monument appear in search results, along with its name.

You can search by image in three ways: drag the image into the Google images search box, upload the image, or paste a URL of the image. Search by Image browser extensions for Chrome and Firefox are also available.

Google will also begin caching web pages that it predicts users will click, saving two to five seconds in most searches.
