    No text? No problem for Chrome's search by image

    Google Chrome updated on Tuesday with some new features that will make it easier to search on desktops and easier to use on Android.

    The stable channel for Chrome on desktops, version 30, now comes with "search by image." Right-click on any image, and you'll see an option to search using the image as the subject of the query. This works on Windows, Mac, and Linux.

    Other changes in desktop Chrome include new Chrome Web apps application programming interfaces (APIs), which will make the Web apps function more like native mobile apps with in-app payments, saving to a media gallery, and downloads

    Note - Google must be set as your default search engine in Chrome for the "Search by Image" option to be available.

    Image searches are generally the only searches that I use Google for.

    Although I don't like or use Chrome, it is a good idea to include this ability.

    Maybe other browsers will start to incorporate it as well.
