TinEye Firefox Add-on Update

TinEye fans: we have a little update for our TinEye Firefox Add-on. We have added the ability to search for images on your own computer (i.e. file:// URLs) and for images on secure websites (i.e. https:// URLs). Our TinEye add-on now sends the raw image data when the image URL starts with file:// or https://.

This means that you will be able to search for images you encounter when you are on a secure site that requires a login. Instead of saving the image to your hard drive and submitting it to TinEye, you will now simply be able to right click the image to search.

Happy searching. And happy attribution by TinEye. And as always, let us know your feedback.

does newly added feature of searching for pictures in computer come without consent and enable/disable control?

Sure it does. If you don’t use our TinEye plugin, I promise it won’t search your pictures. :)

Well, it was good while it lasted.
This is an exploit waiting to happen, and I don’t feel like having my computer searched for whatever by random websites.

Goodbye tineye, I guess all good things yada yada yada….

I don’t think that you understand what the TinEye Firefox add-on does! It can’t search your computer. You can use the add on to upload an image that you personally have saved to your hard drive and search on TinEye. The same way you simply upload an image from a URL or a website. It does not search your computer! It can’t do that.
