GPT Plus - A ChatGPT enhancement suite
Why I made a Chrome plugin for the ChatGPT website
Hear me out.
GPT4 is awesome. Dozens of awesome open-source products leveraging its API are coming out daily, and I want to try them all.
But there are a couple of caveats:
Those cool products need your API key
The API is still on a waitlist (unless you’re lucky)
Using it is preemptively costly for the common people
So I wanted to take a different approach. Because let me remind you that while it is severely restricted, there’s a way cheaper tool to achieve the same result, known as the ChatGPT Plus subscription.
My estimates show that in 1 month, I would have averaged ~4000$ (probably pre-tax) of GPT4 API costs. So an all-you-can-eat GPT4 buffet for 20$ (pre-tax) per month feels infinitely cheaper. Which is why I use it every day.
But while I can attest to the current superiority of the GPT4 model, and the inferiority of the web pricing, the rest of the product leaves a lot to be desired:
I often send the message by mistake when pressing Enter
I need to setup my chat every time by giving it an initial prompt to tell it to stop apologizing so damn much
GPT3.5 is selected by default when clicking new
Plugins are on a waitlist for developers and users (different ones, mind you 🙄)
I know being the top dog gives you quite the leeway product-wise, but I had to take matters into my own hands. So let me introduce

A Chrome extension for web ChatGPT power users:
Use Enter for new line and Ctrl+Enter to send the message
Default to GPT4 on a new chat
Ctrl+K to open up the prompt template menu
Navigate with Ctrl+Up/Down
Send to input with Ctrl+Enter
Close with Esc
And there’s a lot more coming up
I’m currently working on turning this extension into a Langchain Model, which would open up this extension to custom agents (think plugins). And I hope to leverage the access to the current browser as one of those agents 😉
So once again, thank you for following me. If you find this useful, I’d be grateful of you to share this post or the extension itself.
