Now that Chrome 29 has gone mainstream, Google has introduced Chrome 30 to the beta stage. This release makes it easier to use Google’s search-by-image feature, which allows you to upload an image and search the internet for webpages that have that image (also great for finding larger sizes of images). Right-click any image on the web in Chrome 30 and you’ll see the option to “Search Google for this image”.

Chrome for Android also sees some improvement in this release with the introduction of new gestures:

In Chrome for Android, new gestures make it even easier to get where you want to go.  Swipe horizontally across the top toolbar to quickly switch tabs (this gesture replaces swiping from the edge of the screen).  Drag vertically down from the toolbar to enter into the tab switcher view.  And drag down from the menu to open the menu and select the item you want without having to lift your finger.

Expect Chrome 30 to come out of beta within a couple of months.
