The Arc browser wants to replace Safari and Chrome with the integration of ChatGPT –

Nowadays, in most browsers you can use the search bar, often installed at the top of the interface, to respond to queries via Google, Bing or even DuckDuckGo. But Arc, an alternative to Chrome or Mozilla Firefox led by Josh Miller (Patreon board member), doesn’t see it that way. The platform now allows you to replace your traditional search engine with… ChatGPT! A good option for those who don’t really know how to use Google and keep typing whole sentences to finally find the right thing.

ChatGPT, the flagship artificial intelligence app, just celebrated its first anniversary and already has hundreds of millions of users around the world. His progress in this area will have even set a growth record just a few weeks after its release. Today, more than seven hundred employees work for his success, all under the control of his number one: Sam Altman. Finally, the manager was also thanked by his main shareholders before he quickly returned on board under pressure from the workforce.

Arc: the differences to Safari

Our readers primarily work on Macs. So let’s do a quick comparison between the Arc browser and Safari, the latter being installed natively on all Apple computers but also on iPhones and iPads.

First, Arc aims at multitasking and allows the creation of real-world work environments for each user’s project. For example, we can imagine dedicating one room to working, another to listening to music at the same time, then a third for personal tasks, and finally a final one for a side project. A process that is of course reminiscent of that of the tab groups in Safari.

Keep in mind that Arc Browser is fully customizable. For example, Internet users can choose the background color of the browser, which this time reflects the value proposition of an alternative that also recently made headlines: Quiche Browser.

A sword in the water?

Despite everything, Arc is trying to establish itself in a market that is still far from leaving room for a newcomer among the big names in the industry. For ten years, no browser apart from Microsoft Edge (which replaced Internet Explorer) has made it into the top 5 most used surfing tools. Today it is still the software from Redmond, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Safari and Opera that take the top spots in the ranking.

In fact, alternatives such as Brave, Station and even Vivaldi have recently emerged among early adopters. But never beyond that. – Official app
