Google Search By ImageJust about two weeks ago, the Google Search By Image feature stopped working for IE9 users.

Google offered a couple workarounds but those workarounds are no longer needed.

Google's Albert C. said in a Google Web Search Help thread that the issue is now fixed. He wrote:

Just a heads up, we've fixed the issue and you should be able to do these searches from the homepage again.

Honestly, I am surprised this one is fixed that quickly. Typically, issues like this can linger on for months and months without being fixed. I guess this was an easy one or bothered a specific Googler that was able to make a difference.

I have never been able to do a "search by image" in IE. It only opens the image in the browser and the address has this: C:\Users\jarze\Pictures\barry-schwartz.jpg
