Cursor Code Editor is an AI-powered code editor that's a fork of VS Code. It integrates GPT-4 and GPT-3.5 and features a privacy mode, ensuring that code is never stored anywhere other than the user's machine and will not be used for training.

This code editor features an integrated AI accessible within the interface. Unlike other editors like VS Code, which rely on AI extensions, Cursor comes with AI built-in. Transitioning from VS Code to this IDE is seamless, as it allows for easy importation of all previously used extensions. For more features, you can check out this link.

Its UI closely resembles that of VS Code, making it familiar to users.

Ctrl K
The Ctrl K command facilitates code editing and writing with the AI.

Users can request necessary code directly in the chat, with the AI generating the code directly within the editor.

Additionally, a separate chat feature is available for clarifying doubts and finding bugs.

In my opinion, Cursor IDE has the potential to significantly improve productivity and save time for developers. While AI won't replace programmers, those who leverage AI tools can potentially outperform others. I encourage everyone to give it a try.
