Google is bringing some small but useful improvements to Chrome today. First, it's making image search simpler and faster than ever on the desktop. Beginning this week, you'll be able to right-click on any image within Chrome and immediately initiate a Google search for matching or similar photos across the web. Chrome for Android is picking up three new gestures to speed up your mobile browsing. Swiping horizontally across the top toolbar will now quickly jump between your open tabs, and a downward swipe from the toolbar will bring up Chrome's tab switcher view. The last gesture lets users drag down from the menu to open the menu and select an item without needing to lift any fingers away from the display.
