Briefly: a free augmented search summary for Google

Look under the hood of Google search results by examining the AI-based summary and correlation with some knowledge database (Wikipedia as an example).

Briefly gives you only the essence of search results by squeezing exact data in just one click. Save your time exploring lots of unnecessary pages and articles that Google finds. Use the content wisely: extract key parts avoiding generic & marketing expressions and focus on details relevant to your inquiry.

Core features:

  • Reading time - estimated time in minutes to explore the entire article;
  • Summary - key sentences scraped from a web page;
  • Recommendation of additional search terms - the extension predicts extra keywords semantically close to the search inquiry;
  • Related Wikipedia articles - find similar articles posted on Wikipedia as the most powerful knowledge base.

User reviews
Damn, this is really good stuff! Edit: Okay, just found out that it doesn't work for every search result... so I changed the rating to from 5 stars to 3-4 stars (I would rate 3 and a half stars if I could). Edit 2: Just found out it's usable and pretty nice but a bit buggy too... so, 3 stars.
