“Experience Effortless Browsing: Arc Browser Introduces Live Folders for Automatic Tab Updates”

Live Folders comes as the company also builds out more AI-powered features to create more dynamic and automated user experiences. The company is launching Live Folders initially with GitHub pull request support. When a user creates a GitHub pull request, Arc automatically creates a Live Folder in the sidebar. When it asked users about support for types of systems for the Live Folders feature, GitHub was the top requested service. It added that the tech behind Live Folders is flexible, so it could also adopt things like updates from RSS feeds.

The Browser Company has been making waves in the internet browser market, following its successful fundraising round of $50 million with a valuation of $550 million in March. With its innovative Arc browser, the company aims to challenge the dominance of Chrome and other top players in the market. Continuing its mission to provide an alternative browsing experience, The Browser Company has announced the release of its latest feature: Live Folders.

Live Folders is a new addition to the company’s repertoire of AI-powered features, designed to enhance dynamic and automated user experiences. One of its long-term plans includes the development of an AI agent that can browse the web on behalf of users, although this feature is yet to be officially launched.

The first iteration of Live Folders is now live, with initial support for GitHub pull requests. With this feature, whenever a user creates a pull request on GitHub, Arc will automatically generate a Live Folder in the sidebar.

This Live Folder will then dynamically update tabs based on various events, such as creating a pull request, getting assigned to one, requesting a review, or being mentioned in one. Once the task is completed, the related tabs will be cleared from the folder.

Additionally, if a new pull request is received while the Live Folder is minimized, the browser will expand the folder to bring attention to the new request.

The Browser Company has ambitious plans for Live Folders, aiming to create a new kind of tracking system to assist users in their daily work. This feature was first teased in February, where the company inquired about the most requested services that users would like to see support for in Live Folders, GitHub being the top choice.

The company further stated that it is actively working on integrating other collaboration-oriented services, such as Google Calendar, Google Drive, and Figma, to Live Folders. Additionally, the flexibility of the technology behind this feature allows for potential future integration with updates from RSS feeds.

In another exciting update earlier this month, The Browser Company’s CEO, Josh Miller, announced the hiring of former Safari designer Charlie Deets and former WhatsApp designer Christine Rode. The duo will be responsible for developing unique interface designs for the company’s products.
