If you click the camera, you can upload any picture or plug in an image URL from the web and ask Google to figure out what it is. The feature will be available in 40 languages and will be supported by both Chrome and Firefox web browsers via extensions.

Google also announced Instant Pages, which promises to speed up browsing by prerendering results. It saves you between two and five seconds on typical searches.
