How it works

Browse AI is the first AI-powered web automation software that learns to perform data extraction, monitoring, and automation tasks on the web simply by observing someone perform the actions once.

There are 3 ways to use Browse AI:

Choose a built-in automation. You're set.

Every week, we create new built-in automations for our most popular use cases. Using a built-in automation typically takes 2 clicks and less than a minute.

Do it yourself.
No coding needed.

Anyone can use our browser extension to extract or monitor data from any website. We've made it as simple and quick as possible.

Let's go through a custom automation example (without using built-in automations)

You want to be notified when somebody tweets specific keywords ("browser automation", in our example) so you can reply to them with a link to your product and potentially gain a new customer.

You're going to record a new task to monitor Twitter search results.

Solution: Start recording

You click on the Browse AI Recorder icon and press "Record new task".

We're recording now

The page is refreshed and you can now see Browse AI Recorder on the screen recording your actions.

info-signBrowse AI uses an incognito window for recording, so if you were signed in before recording, you need to sign in again.

Login as usual

Many sites, including Twitter, require you to log in before you can use their functionalities. You just login as usual.

Logged in

You just logged into Twitter. Now, you need to search for a keyword.

Take a screenshot of the results

Here it is: The top recent tweets about browser automation.

Now, you need Browse AI to capture a screenshot for you.

Name the task and schedule it to run every hour, day, week, or month.

info-signAs tasks run on Browse AI cloud servers, you don't need to keep your computer on for monitoring tasks to run.

Your automation's ready!

That's it! You recorded a new task and set up an automation.

You can browse your dashboard or close it. The task will run on schedule and you'll be notified if the captured content changes.

Email notification

Browse AI keeps running your task on schedule and once it detects new tweets, it sends you an email notification.

"Screenshot changed" email notification

If you click on the link in the email, you can see before/after screenshots and highlighted changes.

Other features

If you're using Browse AI just for monitoring sites for changes, the features above may be everything you need.

But there are a number of other incredibly powerful features that are useful when you want to use Browse AI for other purposes, like end-to-end testing or monitoring a lot of pages on a site for changes.

Task actions and video player

You can see a list of actions taken during a task.

Browse AI can also record a video while running your tasks.

Here's an actual video

Videos help a lot when investigating failed end-to-end tests.

Task variables

When you record a new task, Browse AI parses the recording and generates variables you can easily change later.

Task variables

Multiple monitors

Variables can be adjusted per task or per monitor. For instance, monitoring more keywords on Twitter would be as easy as adding a new monitor with a different "Search query" variable.
