Some of its key features include a real-time chat with on-demand answers about your codebase, automatic code generation and fixes, and seamless VSCode extension migration. Cursors interface allows you to edit, debug, and reference code in plain text, staying in flow while the AI handles low-level logic for you. The platform also offers strong privacy options for those working with important or sensitive codebases.
