Microsoft Edge has been the first, but it will not be the last. Redmond’s web browser already offers its “Copilot” with which it integrates the functions of the new Bing “with ChatGPT” in a sidebar, and now who will follow the steps is from the Opera browser.
This is what the company indicates in its official blog, explaining that its browser for desktop and mobile will offer “content services generated by artificial intelligence” and is working on more integrations of this engine in other solutions.
Microsoft has been especially quick at the time of integrating an evolutionary model of artificial intelligence that goes beyond what ChatGPT achieved. We have already tested both the new Bing and the new Edge with this capacity, and the truth is that it is a very striking novelty and that it is expected to be the next big revolution in browsers and browsers.
In the video demo you can see how it is possible to activate the option selecting from button “Shorten” (“Shorten”) from the menu to the right of the direction bar. When doing so, a side bar appears with ChatGPT in the left part of the browser that shows a small summary of the article or the website that we have in the browser tab since we have activated the option.
The engine seems to be limited to that at the moment and it does not seem that we can then continue conversing and interacting with this artificial intelligence engine that uses OpenAI technology.
It’s one form alga shy to integrate the power of ChatGPT in the browser, but Opera assures that they intend to “expand their existing artificial intelligence program” not only in the browser, but also in “the current products and video games” through their own solutions
The movement demonstrates the interest that ChatGPT has generated after Microsoft’s announcement. Both the browser and the Microsoft Edge browser have this option, which is available in the closed beta phase -you can sign up for the list to try it in the future-.
Meanwhile, Google is going with lead feet with Bard, its particular alternative to ChatGPT, and indeed he mentioned nothing of a potential integration of Bard in its Chrome browser, which also has a very high market share.
