    The similar image is a bit interesting but definitely not perfect. I really did not see much better results than the normal text based Google image search.

    I will keep it linked for further testing.

    When I first saw the concept I thought it would allow you to upload an image you had to find a similar one, but on exploring it it isn't that all. It's a cool idea but it's a lot less effective than it should be. It mostly just seems to find images of a similar color and general topic.

    You could use tineye.com to do that. It allows you to either upload, or provide a link to an image, and it will search for similar ones on the web.
