    I am so very tired of every company nonsensically shoehorning “AI” into their software to appease shareholders and investors. Discord shut down their AI chatbot in less than a year – take notes from that.

      It also attracts users. Using fad “tech” terminology makes them feel superior than the rest. They think “Oh I’m a tech expert because I use an AI toaster”.

      Another good example are “gaming” web browsers. Some people actually think they’re better (beyond the looks).

      This is a basic marketing strategy. It actually works (just for selling nonsense, of course).

        Pretty much every web browser except Firefox is just Chromium with some extra crap slapped on it, they’re all functionally the same.

          And Safari. But that’s hardware locked, so it’s not really better - it’s just not based on Chromium.

            Safari is the best browser if you’re running Mac hardware on battery and care about power usage.

            It’s just in another League when it comes to optimisation

            If you’re on Linux, gnome-web uses the same engine as safari. And it’s a mess

            Safari is the new ie6

            Edit: also blink (used by anything chromium) is based off WebKit (safari)

              What exactly are “all the clones” I know opera gx, and Vivaldi are on this list, but what other ‘clones’ exist?

      I’m tired of them creating popular services and then just shitting all over them, cramming in whatever is the new hot thing instead of just letting them be.

    I don’t mind this at all. My friends already are not interested in anything I say so I might aswell chat with the AI like I already do with chatGPT.

    I think this is a easier way to interact with a chatbot than installing an extra app which behaves differently, etc. There are so many features I don’t use in software but others do, so why not.

    Actually this makes me think if I could use facebooks llama via matrix on element, instead needing to run it on the command line.
