Superpower ChatGPT Chrome Extension

Hey OpenAI community!

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 your time!


I tried this but removed it because of the unsightly display ads in the sidebar.


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.

Hope this helps and wishing you the best.


The extension is hosted by the chrome store, and the extension uses the users cpu, so i’m curious, what server costs ? Or did i miss something ?

Otherwise, nice intitiative :+1:

yep, traction first, money later


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.

Question :

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.

A solution to this ?
Thanks :+1:

I could be wrong, but I don’t think you can intercept the api response using an extension.
That being said, ChatGPT uses the streaming feature of the OpenAI API:

And on the frontend, they use Event Source to receive the text stream:

Hope that helps.


Seems like it’s possible

Haven’t tested it, just posting in case it may interest others

New version with a bunch of new features is released. Now you can:

  • Sync all your chats locally in your own computer

  • Search your old chats

  • Customize preset prompts

  • Select and delete/export a subset of conversations

  • Hide/show the sidebar

  • Change the output language

The newsletter has also been growing steadily and it has become one our most popular features in the extension.

And lots of small improvements and bug fixes. More features coming soon.

Sorry @krisu.virtanen. Should have made that clear. The preset prompts feature is coming in v2.2.0 which is currently under review to get released on Chrome. The Firefox v2.2.0 is already released.

I love the extension and I think this could be a great extension but it keeps having a bug in chrome, edge and edge dev. Is there anyway you can take a look at this?

The bug is that I can’t use my chat gpt and it just hangs I have to uninstall this extension, also sometimes it messes up the conversation history that is available.

Think your extension is amazing!


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.


FYI. We have a new discord channel. Superpower ChatGPT

Is there a bug right now that I’m not aware of? I was loving using the extenstion but for some reason it has stopped loading. Any help/info appreciated.

I have submitted a new version to Chrome for review. Chrome doesn’t tell me how long it will take for them to review it. I just have to wait. In the meantime, both Firefox and GitHub versions are updated if you want to try those until Chrome is updated. Sorry for the inconvenience,
