Extension bookmark, integration settings & narrow AI

Product update visual
Product update visual
❄️
This month consisted of a few key additions to our product as well as a great deal of smaller improvements, bug fixes, and design iteration.

Extension bookmark

In the past, the Flowrite icon in Chrome’s extension menu redirected users to our web app. We recently implemented a new UI that enables users to open the extension window, enable or disable it, access their settings, and get help with using the extension.

Integration settings

In our last month’s product update, we introduced a completely new version of our extension with a vast number of new integrations and a multigeneration capability.

With the new integrations, we wanted to enable users to disable the extension if it’s not needed on certain websites. This is now possible in the web app’s settings as well as the extension bookmark.

Narrow AI

One of the most exciting initiatives for our AI team has been to gradually improve our generation quality by focusing our efforts on each use case one at a time.

“Narrow AI” – our internal codename for the project – finally saw the daylight this month as we shipped the first improved templates to users with promising first performance.

We’ll be introducing more “NAI” templates in the next months’ updates; starting from HR, sales, and basic scheduling use cases, and eventually covering all templates Flowrite has to offer.

Fixes & improvements

UI updates

  • Made multiple design changes to multigeneration elements (alternatives and the preview) across web app and extension
  • Removed an unneeded scroll bar from the "received email" field in the web app
  • Got rid of the layout shift in the web app’s sidebar when the output would pass a certain height
  • Fixed a blinking template list when hovering over specific spots within the Flowrite button
  • Tweaked the template names inside the list to avoid them getting narrover when hovering over the template

Improvements

  • Implemented a character counter to “Your email/message” field in the web app and the extension, replacing the old character warning when starting a generation
  • Added correct “copied” notifications after an output is copied to the clipboard in the extension
  • Made slight content changes to the pop-up that appears after the extension is installed for the first time
  • Made the “Recipient’s name” field editable while the first name recognition is taking place
  • Made the Flowrite button disappear after one click (instead of two) in the extension’s input selection mechanism
  • Made the cursor move to the end of the “received message” field when expanding the element in the extension
  • Made the "your email" field autofocus after the extension window is opened
  • Made double- and triple-clicks work in the extension’s recipient’s name field
