Try it Out

  1. Head to a webpage with the text you want to summarize. Use out our AI + PixieBrix Blog Post if you don't have any other pages handy. Highlight the text you want to summarize.
  2. Right-click to open up the Context Menu, or use Cmd/Ctrl + M to open up the PixieBrix Quick Bar. Choose the "Summarize Selected Text" action. If you have other context menu mods configured, you'll need to click the PixieBrix icon to view them all.
