TinEye gets an Internet Explorer extension!

Internet Explorer LogoWhile the folks around the Idéeplex might be big fans of Firefox, we know that there are a lot of you out there who are perfectly happy with Internet Explorer, thank you very much.

And what have you been asking us for? An IE browser extension to allow you to search using TinEye with a right-click option, just like the one TinEye already has for Firefox… we’ve been listening and now your IE extension is here!

TinEye allows you to search the web for images in one of three ways:

1. Upload an image from your computer
2. Point to an image that is already on the web (via a url)
3. Install the TinEye browser extension for Firefox or IE, so you can right-click on any web image to search it

TinEye LogoTinEye instantly analyzes your query image to create a compact little digital signature or ‘fingerprint’ for it and then searches for your image on the web by comparing its fingerprint to the fingerprint of every single other image in the TinEye search index. Cool!

We hope that all our fans out there that are IE users enjoy the new TinEye extension. Now you can merrily right-click all the images you want to TinEye!

Enough talking? Off you go then, download the extension (you’ll have to sign into TinEye first).

As always, if you have any comments, questions or even more suggestions send’em on over to tineyefeedback[at]ideeinc.com.

Happy Searching!
