You always get this kind of thing. The novelty wears off after a while.

However, I've also found the AI useful on a few occasions now - even sometimes when they get the answers wrong!

I'd say Microsoft screwed up by limiting Bing Chat to Edge.

They were never going to dethrone Google like that.

If anything it was, rather, a turn-off.

Early on there was a cross-browser extension, Bing Chat for All Browsers, that worked around this. It's what Microsoft themselves should have offered from the start and presumably a portion of such users would then start using Bing more in general, even if not as their default search. At the very least they would be using Bing Chat and not be unnecessarily locked out.

There is the third-party extension but how many people are aware of it?

Microsoft officially do now have an extension for Chrome not sure whether it works for Chromium browsers) that allows access. Chrome is not my default browser. I tried it briefly and found
  1. It didn't work.
  2. It changed default search to Bing.
Poor.

The third-party extension doesn't do that.

And btw access to Google Bard is not artificially restricted to the Chrome browser. Why didn't Microsoft do the same?
