Rolling out bookmark improvements in Micro.blog Premium today. Two things:
- Micro.blog will now try to summarize the text of a web page that is bookmarked by sending it to our future robot overlords at OpenAI. This is hidden by default, but can be enabled by clicking Bookmarks → “…” → “Show Summaries” on the web.
- There is a new web browser extension to make bookmarking the current web page easier, initially available for Firefox and Chrome, with Safari to follow. You can find it by searching “Micro.blog” in the Firefox and Chrome extensions directories. After it’s installed, you can pin it to your toolbar.
The AI summaries are still experimental. I’ve found them useful to get a quick glance of something I want to read later. In the future, I hope we can use them to improve search too.
Here’s a screenshot of a bookmarked web page with the summary shown:
It’s going to be a busy week. We have another new feature set to launch this month, with a new app that I’m submitting to Apple today. Thanks for your support!
