Kagi Assistant (available as open beta for Ultimate members) now leverages GPT4-vision model to better understand and describe images. You can test this improved functionality by uploading images or providing image URLs for the Kagi Assistant to analyse.

Edit: A member just emailed saying “the example you have is wrong about 7 of the 10 “Key Points” (only the restaurant name, VAT amount, and amount tendered are correct).” Yes that can be the case with LLMs, we are not trying to present this as grounbreaking, we just integrated a model and the example is as good as the underlying model. This is clearly demonstrating its limitations and it is what it is. We are currently using the best commercially available vision model on the market and it is our desire to emphasize that access to this and other world’s cutting edge LLM’s are all included in the Assistant with one Kagi subscription. No doubt they will get better in the future.

Kagi Search for Safari Extension 2.0 has just launched! We’ve updated the extension to be cross-platform and rewrote it from scratch for improved reliability, as well as a simpler way to get your Kagi searches going across your macOS and iOS devices, with Apple’s automatic extension state syncing.

Existing users of the iOS Kagi Search for Safari Extension are encouraged to install the cross-platform version from the App Store to continue receiving updates after the iOS-only extension is delisted (in July 2024). Until that time, the iOS-only extension will continue to receive the same updates and run the same underlying code as the cross-platform extension.

The migration to the Safari Web Extensions framework will require you to grant access to the Extension on the search engine during your first run. See the instructions in the app for details.

Release notes for extension:

[Fixed] Redirects should not experience intermittent failures

[Changed] You can override which search engine redirects to Kagi manually. The first time you install/upgrade to this version, the extension will attempt to detect your current Safari search engine

[Changed] You only need to provide extension access to urls on the search engine you are overriding.
