After experiencing the browser plug-in launched by Kimi today, it may be a new “fishing” tool for migrant workers.

How popular is Kimi smart assistant? I believe you have more or less felt its breaking popularity.

According to reports, Kimi’s monthly active users increased by 321% month-on-month in March this year, reaching 12.61 million people. Crossing the boundaries of age and profession, Kimi has become the common choice of many students and professionals without exception.

For example, Kimi can summarize tens of thousands of words of information by just throwing a link, which has already made many workers lament that the outside world already works like this?

Kimi is still evolving and has recently launched a new browser plug-in.

This plug-in not only saves the step of throwing links, but also allows AI to help us summarize the text content of web pages directly in the browser. It also supports delimiting text and allows AI to help us summarize and explain.

Let’s first talk about some features of the Kimi browser plug-in:

  • Call up Kimi assistant shortcut key: command+K (default mode)
  • The shortcut key activates the extension and can be set by yourself
  • Select the web page text and call the plug-in to search
  • Reference annotation of search results is not provided, which may cause AI illusion.
  • Supports translation, search assistant, calculator, etc. Kimi+
  • Excellent summary of full text, good at summarizing text on web pages
  • You can adjust plug-in settings according to your preferences, such as turning off floating buttons
  • Currently free and unlimited usage, user-friendly

Attached is the download address of the browser plug-in:

Delineate with one click and create a walking encyclopedia

To experience the Kimi plug-in, it is actually very simple. You only need to enter the download address, then click the conspicuous "Install Now", and then follow the official installation instructions step by step. I personally tested that the plug-in can be installed on you in less than two minutes. on the browser.

After installing the Kimi plug-in, I couldn't wait to get started and experience it.

As an editor who needs to browse external news all year round, when I meet some company founders whose biographies I am not familiar with, it takes extra time to switch to the Kimi web version to search, which is often more than worth the gain.

For example, when I browse the news reports of The Information and want to learn more about Noam Shazeer, the founder of Character AI, I only need to highlight the text with the mouse and call the Kimi plug-in to get information about his academic background.

After actual measurement, the selected interpretation results will be retained as blue dotted lines.

On the one hand, only if a follow-up question is raised, the explanation results will be saved in the historical chat records of your Kimi account; on the other hand, even if you close the web page, you can still trace the explanation results by clicking on the highlighted blue dotted line.

However, if the wrong area is drawn, I haven't found a way to remove the blue dotted line yet. You are welcome to add more in the comment area.

Here is a little trick. Using this feature can help us build our own knowledge base.

For example, if I see some good sentences on the official website of Ai Faner that are worth pondering, or a piece of scientific and technological knowledge worth collecting, I only need to select the text content and save it in the historical chat history of the Kimi account. Rounding serves as an electronic library that can be read at any time.

Kimi defines this function as "lightweight small search" and has appropriately highlighted its characteristics.

Yes, it does not indicate the source of citations when giving explanations. In other words, if there is AI illusion, we cannot verify the accuracy of the explanation results. For example, it may regard ChatGPT as Kimi's own. product.

Of course, if you encounter something you don’t understand, you can continue to ask questions in the chat window.

Musk's SpaceX hopes to launch up to 120 times in Florida, but there is the possibility of affecting scrub jays (endangered birds). Although the preliminary explanation is very detailed, I still want to ask about the current survival of scrub jays. quantity.

After multiple rounds of testing, this feature gives me the feeling that even if you just delineate a word, the AI's interpretation results seem to combine the context of the selected word and the preliminary search results.

The advantage is that the accuracy of the interpretation results is guaranteed to a certain extent, but the disadvantage is that your privacy may be exposed at a glance.

The chat dialog box also supports Kimi+. You only need to enter the @ sign in the dialog box, and you can choose to summon specific Kimi+ models for interaction, such as translator, search assistant, and calculator.

Cos 90°, which is very easy for middle school students but very difficult for college students, is not a problem for it.

In short, as Kimi officially outlines, the function of delineating word/sentence selection is more suitable for specific scenarios in the browser, helping you better understand a term, a name, a sentence, and satisfying your curiosity. , and even build a personalized knowledge base.

Use the Kimi plug-in to summarize the full text and double the efficiency

The new full-text summary feature of the Kimi plug-in is equally impressive.

Don't dump a link to Kimi's assistant again. Now after installing the plug-in, when we need to read the public account article intensively, we can call the Kimi summary function, and a detailed and appropriate summary of the article will be presented in front of us.

You see, when we asked the Kimi plug-in to summarize the article just published by the Kimi WeChat public account today, with a few clicks, a comprehensive introduction and summary of the Kimi plug-in and its new functions came out.

It has everything from usage scenarios, experience optimization, calculator functions to problem recommendations and future prospects.

It should be noted that the function of summarizing the full text does not support third-party prompts. The quality of the summary depends entirely on Kimi official. However, Kimi officials are expected to evaluate and optimize this function in the future.

In a work scenario, suddenly your boss sends you an in-depth and good article that is thousands of words long, with a death smile inviting you to share the good article. At this time, when you are busy working, you can open the article with your browser. Use the Kimi plug-in to summarize the full text, and then "have a chat" with the leader.

Don’t panic when your boss asks you. You can also ask for details of his article.

Or as mentioned above, English reports are difficult to read, so why not let the Kimi plug-in summarize English reports with one click and help me filter and select topics efficiently?

Take Bloomberg's Mark Gurman's report as an example. The entire article was dismantled into a clear skeleton like a butcher unraveling a cow. My colleagues in the Morning Post editor exclaimed, "It's broken. I didn't expect this plug-in to come to me."

After you get the topic, you can start writing the manuscript.

When writing manuscripts, we often encounter memory "stuck" situations. For example, Musk and OpenAI CEO Sam Altman fight every now and then. To understand the historical origins of these "hateful" rivals, just add Kimi The plug-in can be placed next to it in the form of a sidebar.

Here’s a little tip: you can also summarize the full text of the manuscript you finished writing on the fly.

By the way, if you think the Kimi floating button in the lower right corner is annoying, you can turn it off in the settings, or choose a global floating window. This way of giving the choice to the user is worthy of praise.

After several rounds of experience, I have become familiar with the default command+K shortcut key to call the Kimi plug-in.

If your command+K has already been used, you can click "Start Shortcut Key" with the mouse to enter the reset shortcut key. Here, you can also set the shortcut key to activate the extension.

Although we can call the Kimi plug-in through shortcut keys, we cannot close the plug-in in the same way. It is like eating a delicious meal but not getting the last bite. It always feels like something is missing.

After experiencing the Kimi plug-in, I came to the conclusion that it cannot and cannot replace the search engine. It is a more refreshing "search engine" and its function is similar to the AI ​​function of the WeChat input method we introduced previously.

However, it does not require entering the "=" sign, and it releases the browser's scene potential to the greatest extent.

Judging from the line-by-line translation and quick summary results of delimited word selection, it is aimed at some translation plug-ins. In comparison, the general effect of the Kimi large model is purely a proper dimensionality reduction attack.

In addition, the Kimi plug-in also features a free plug-in, which currently has no upper limit on the number of times it can be used, which is really delicious.

Judging from the effect of summarizing the full text, it can break a long article into fragments, but also break it down to the core. Even after reading the full text, the details you overlooked can be found in this summary.

It sounds a bit contrary to Tiangang, but in the process of fragmenting information, if the information "skeleton" is preserved well enough, it will play a role in supplementing information. For some careless people, the Kimi plug-in is indeed called Just need.

More importantly, when everyone is talking about 2024 as the year for the implementation of large-scale model technology, it will not work without thunder and rain, and the Kimi plug-in follows the most basic and important product principle – —

That is, AI products should be embedded around users, rather than users going to AI products.

On the PC, in addition to the computer desktop, the browser can be said to be one of the most commonly used scenarios for users. Compared with the web page, using a Kimi button with a higher degree of freedom of call can more effectively connect users' most frequent usage habits.

User experience comes first, nothing else.

Kevin Kelly, the author of "Out of Control", also pointed out that regarding technology, at the beginning, no one knew what the new invention was best used for. For example, when Edison invented the phonograph, he didn't know what it was used for.

The gramophone was gradually used in two scenarios: one was to record last words, and the other was to record speeches in church, including singing. Later, the gramophone was mainly used for this purpose. Therefore, uses are often discovered through use and constant experimentation.

The same is true for products in the AI ​​era.

With Kimi, there is curiosity. Those knowledge points that once confused you can now be settled one by one through the Kimi plug-in. The core point is that when everyone is a novice, we have to be the first to cater to the changes in this AI era.
