Arc Browser launches Live Folders to automatically update tabs for you

After raising $50 million in March at a $550 million valuation, the browser company continues to introduce more features to its Arc browser, aiming to provide a true alternative to Chrome and other dominant players in the internet browser market Taste. Today, it’s launching a new feature called Live Folders, which will automatically create and update tabs in folders based on events like someone adding a file to a shared folder.

The launch of Live Folders comes as the company also builds more AI-powered features to create a more dynamic and automated user experience. One plan is to build an artificial intelligence agent to browse the web on your behalf, although this has not yet been launched.

The company initially launched Live Folders and provided support for GitHub pull requests. When a user creates a GitHub pull request, Arc automatically creates a live folder in the sidebar.

The folder will automatically update tabs based on pull requests you create, assign, request review, or mention. The folder will automatically clear the tabs containing completed requests and tasks.

If there are new pull requests while your active folder is collapsed, the browser will look at it to highlight the new requests to you.

Arc’s goal is to build a new tracking system with this functionality to help users with their daily tasks. The company revealed this feature in February. When it asked users about system-type support for the live folders feature, GitHub was the most requested service.

The company says its focus is on integrating services into collaboration-enabled Live Folders such as Google Calendar, Google Drive and Figma. It added that the technology behind Live Folders is flexible so it can also incorporate technologies such as RSS feed updates.

Earlier this month, the startup’s CEO Josh Miller announced that the company had hired former Safari designer Charlie Deets and former WhatsApp designer Christine Rode to build a different interface design.
