Why this? 💡

Because the official Chat lacks important features, is more limited than the api, at times slow or unavailable, and you cannot deploy it yourself, remix it, add features, or share it with your friends. Our users report that big-AGI is faster, more reliable, and features rich with features that matter to them.

Much features, so fun
