Enable web access and one-click prompts in ChatGPT
and display AI responses next to search results
Google Search and Yahoo! Search.
The extension requires access to all websites because there is no backend server to process web requests, and everything happens locally in the browser. There are two modes: web searching using Google Search and Yahoo! Search, and extracting webpage text from URLs. Web searching requires access to Google Search and Yahoo! Search, while URL text extraction requires access to any website. This is why the
access to all websites permission is required.
Some other ChatGPT extensions are known to interfere with WebChatGPT. If you are experiencing issues with the toolbar not showing up, please try disabling any other ChatGPT extensions that you have installed and reloading the page. If you continue to experience issues, feel free to reach out to us on our Discord server for assistance.
The extension currently only supports web searching using the Google Search and Yahoo! Search engine. However, you can use Google Search and Yahoo! Search bangs to get search results from thousands of other websites. For example, !pm to search on PubMed, !gsc – on Google Scholar, etc. You can find the full list of available bangs on the Google Search and Yahoo! Search website. Simply type the bang followed by your search query to perform the search on the corresponding website.
No, currently the extension only works in chromium-based browsers.
