Google has come up with yet another advanced feature called Instant Pages that predicts the link users wants to use and begins fetching its data – even before the user has clicked on the link. The new feature, expected to save 2 to 5 seconds on search query time, is based on Google Instant, which furnishes search results even before the user has finished typing the query or pressed the enter key. Google Instant is likely to be included in the newest test version of Google Chrome browser.

Apart from Instant Pages, Google has also unveiled two more major updates to its search engine – Google Voice Search and Google Search By Image. Voice Search allows users to search by just speaking the search keywords. The feature will be available to Chrome users initially. The feature only accepts voice in English language for now and is likely to support other languages in near future as per Google.


Google "Search By Image" ensures users can search an image by just dragging the sample of the image to be searched in the search engine box. After having dragged the image, the search engine searches similar images. If you are searching for the Eiffel Tower image, just drag and drop the image to the search engine box, and you will be served with the results. Google, however, has made it clear that the new image search feature will not support face recognition technology.

Google, which makes most of its revenues through search-based advertising, is enriching its Internet applications as it faces stiff competition from Bing. The Microsoft search engine is gaining popularity worldwide mainly due to its innovative Internet features. Several reports have also confirmed the growth in Bing's share in search engine space. The announcement of Instant Pages comes months after the launch of Google Instant.
