With today’s release of Chrome M121, Google announced that it will introduce new generative artificial intelligence features that will make the browser easier to use. New additions include a tab organizer, a writing assistant that helps draft text, and the option to customize artwork and themes. browser. To enable these new features, the “Experience AI” switch must be toggled on the Settings page, found in the three-dot drop-down menu.
Tab Organizer will pretty much do what it says: Built-in artificial intelligence will automatically suggest ways to categorize any open tabs in your Chrome windows, and offer the option to create groups. This can be useful if you have a lot of duplicate tabs open. When you click “Organize Similar Tabs”, AI will group open pages based on topics. For example, shopping-related icons can be grouped together and the AI can suggest a name like “Ski-trip shopping tools.”
Chrome’s new text assistance may also have some practical applications. It will launch as an experimental tool that will help users craft text including Google reviews or social media posts. To enable this at startup, you must select “Help me write” to offer the tool options to finish your sentences or continue the text.
Personalization is not new to many Google tools like Mail or Documents and now in Chrome web browsers, you can customize the browser’s visuals – which the company considers an extension of the AI wallpapers it recently developed for Pixel phones. To do this, you need to select the “Customize Chrome” button in the sidebar and ask the AI to create a theme for you. You can search for a description like “small beach town” or “Blade Runner vibes” and browse the AI-generated theme options before making your selection.
The introduction of these new tools will, of course, be competitive Microsoft’s artificially infused Bing engineit reintroduced AI-powered tab grouping and text composition assistant September. However, Chrome still dominates the US browser market by a wide margin, with Bing usually being included in the “others” category, well below rivals like Firefox and Opera.
