Google announced several new search features. The Android Voice Search app is heading to the desktop with the arrival of Voice Search and the search giant has also developed a new reverse image search tool that helps you identify pictures. Interestingly, Google isn't doing face recognition, probably due to privacy concerns. Both features will be available natively in Chrome and in Firefox via an extension.
Also new is Instant Pages, a feature that will prerender results when Google is confident you're going to click them. Instant Pages is available in the latest developer version of Chrome.
We want to help you save some of that time as well, so today we took the next step for Google Instant: Instant Pages. Instant Pages can get the top search result ready in the background while you’re choosing which link to click, saving you yet another two to five seconds on typical searches. Let’s say you’re searching for information about the Smithsonian Folklife Festival, so you search for [dc folklife festival]. As you scan the results deciding which one to choose, Google is already prerendering the top search result for you. That way when you click, the page loads instantly.
