I’m the creator of Superpower ChatGPT Chrome Extension.
Here are some of the extra features the extension adds to the ChatGPT UI.
• Export one/all of your conversation into multiple formats(.txt, .json, .md)
• Add history to user input. Just use the Up/Down Arrow key in the input box to go through your input history
• Prompt Library. Get inspiration from other prompts created by the GPT Community and share your prompts too
• Add input history modal. Scroll through all your input history and mark your favorites for easy access
• Search through your input history and prompt library
• Add word and character counters. See the number of words and characters of each result generated by ChatGPT AI.
• Add Copy functionality to all results
• Timestamps for all chats
If you have any feature request, feel free to share them here.
I’d love to hear your feedback and answer any questions you have about this extension.
Thanks for the feedback, ruby_coder. Since this is a free extension and I’d like to keep it that way while I continue to add more features, I’m exploring different paths such as sponsorship to cover the cost of servers for the extension. That being said, the little box you see on the side currently is my other project, so technically I’m still covering the server fees out of my own pocket. I’ll continue to explore different ways to cover the costs, but for now I think the sidebar sponsorship is the simplest and best option for both the users and myself.
Also interested if you’d be open to pay to use this extension? $1/mo? $5/mo?
I have no idea if I would pay for this extension because I immediately deleted it when the unsightly ads appeared in the sidebar.
I don’t think you will generate enough revenue from your ad model to compensate for how unseemly the ads look; so if you want to be successful and generate revenue from your Chrome extension, my suggestion would be to remove the ads and first see if you can get a huge user base.
You are not going to generate any meaningful revenue with the current user base you have now; but you are going to cause people who do not want ads to delete your extension quickly.
I currently use a different ChatGPT Chrome extension and it has no ads, BTW.
Thanks @i-technology There are a few feature in the extension that require servers and API calls:
Prompt Library: Users can share their interesting prompts with the rest of the community. For this feature to work I need a DB (I use AWS RDS) and a backend that handles submitting new prompts, searching them, and pulling them when the user need to look at them.
Release notes: The release notes inside the extension comes from the database based on the version of the extension you currently have.
Newsletter: Same as release note, this feature also comes from the database. So I can publish new version f the newsletter, without having to release a new version of the extension every day.
And the sidebar sponsorship box itself also comes from the backend, so I can change it or remove it if needed.
Prompt Library (excluded), you could use github to host everything for free, as long as your git is public, you can transform it into a website (even custom domain), and host html, json, etc on there ^^
Maybe google firebase could be a cheap solution (if low traffic) to replace the Prompt Library DB
Thanks @ruby_coder. That makes sense, and I’m currently mainly experimenting with this. From my observation of the Chrome Web Store Analytics, It looks like less than 10% of the users who install the extension on a daily basis, uninstall the extension. This number has been in the same range before and after I added the ad on the sidebar. So my initial thought is that it’s not bothering most of the users. I think the extension adds enough useful features (like allowing you to Export all your chats) that users are ok with the small ad on the sidebar. Also majority of users are outside of US and either can’t afford to pay or just prefer a small ad over paying for this.
That being said, I’m not sure the positioning of the ad is currently the best. There might be a better place to put it that doesn’t bother the user as much and still has the same effect. Inside the newsletter is one place I will be experimenting with in the future.
Have you figured out how to intercept the response from gtp?
Here’s what I mean
I made a chrome extension that does tts, however I was only able to detect when the written response is finalized, which means I can only play back the answer wayyyy later, and this introduces unwanted lag.
Thanks for reporting @xc29001. I’m aware of a bug that was happening. The fix for the bug is already under review to be released by Chrome. The recent OpenAI issues also made things a little bit worse. The new version should be released soon on Chrome. Please keep the extension disabled if you have issues, until the new version comes out. Thanks.
