Firefox Supports AI Chatbots: How to Enable and Use it


AI chatbots are becoming more common, and major browsers, such as Chrome, Microsoft Edge, DuckDuckGo, and Opera, have AI integration that allows users to find answers from the web more conveniently. This integration also enables users to engage in conversations to refine, summarize, or generate new results based on the provided context.

Now, Mozilla has also introduced AI integration to its Firefox browser, enabling users to summarize text, simplify language, and perform other tasks on a webpage. You can use ChatGPT, Google Gemini, HuggingChat, and Le Chat Mistral chatbots directly from the Firefox browser’s sidebar.

Here’s how to enable and use the AI chatbot in the sidebar of your Firefox browser. Please note that, as of this writing, this feature is available in the Firefox Nightly build. To try it out, users need to install the Nightly build on their computer.
