I’ve heard more and more about ChatGPT being a threat to Google and its dominant position as a search engine, and I must agree. Today was a prime example where I was trying to get help writing a specific regex. After twenty minutes of not finding what I wanted from a Google search, I figured I’d just try ChatGPT. Within a few seconds, it got me closer to what I wanted than any of Google’s search results.
This is just one example, but I’ve noticed and I’m sure you have too, how Google is terrible with a lot of searches now. For instance, try to find a product review from someone that is not a low-effort semi-spam site. I’m pretty sure everyone is just appended “reddit” to their queries now, but it’s time for a real competitor to come up and give Google competition.
