    Default Voice search in Google.com comes to desktop via Google Chrome

    Google has added speech recognition into search on desktop for Chrome users. If you’re using Chrome, you’ll start to see a little microphone in every Google search box. Simply click the microphone, and you can speak your search. This can be particularly useful for hard-to-spell searches or complex searches. Voice Search on desktop is rolling out now on google.com in English.

    I tested the image search - and it worked

    I used to be a BIG fan of Opera, but I don't regret I switched to Chrome
