Does not work with Firefox 18.0.1 on OS X 10.6.8, it just opens up the Google Homepage without any results.
Works pefectly for me with FF18.0.1 (KDE 4.9.4, Ubuntu 12.10).
This extension is working for me on Firefox 18.0.1 on this date (Jan. 25, 2013). Simple and effective - a useful tool.
This add-on seems to have stopped working. After clicking on search I get redirected to the Google search homepage.
Minimal, both in terms of functionality and size. Exactly what I needed. 5 stars for being restartless :)
I love this, very educational as well
One of my favorite plugin! Very useful to detect fake photos, better resolution of a picture, etc.
One of my Fav add-on
gives a lot more results than tineye
It does just what it says on the tin!! Saves a lot of copy and paste an lets me see who is using stolen photos as their own profile pics, in seconds rather than minutes.
Too many images produce error messages from Google.
One of the best addons.
the best image search add on
...has a tendency to "discover" multiple re-posts of an image in tumblr.com and hardly ever finds the original image.
I really want to find the owner of an image (in order to seek permission to use) - not just a stream of instances where the owner is not acknowledged.
The site of whoever first put an image on the web must be out there in the Google database somewhere!
Works as intended on publicly available graphics.
As a compulsive image collector, I use this add-on on nearly every page I visit.
Google has really out done themselves in this update of search by image. it really makes it easier for me to find them, upload mine and protect them.
Very good addon! Thank you!
EVO 4G / FRODO -
Stopped working after a recent update. Makes Google complain about the URL being too big for it to process on most pictures.
Also had to manually view image then "search by image for Google" for it to work on a lot of sites, or else it would pick another hidden element and image search that instead.
Where TinEye fails, Google Search By Image works, i have used this to catch 100s of logo plagiarism cases on design contest and logo and crowdsourcing sites. Without this function you would not be able to find out who is faking their profile with a fake profile pic. Great thing, i probably search more by image than by words.
I use this all the time. Mostly to search for images found on Facebook which I feel are questionable. Typically hoax-related photos. This add-on finds photos most of time and I'm able to see if the claims attached to them are verifiable.
Needs fixing. It always seems to search for the very first image on the page rather than the one you click.
thank you, just fixed!
