Online Holiday Shopping – Firefox Offers New Price Comparison Tool
The holiday shopping season has snuck up on you again! Consumers are looking desperately for the best deals and trying to keep track of prices across the web and in stores. Now Firefox has a new tool that will ease your shopping madness.
The new Firefox plugin, called “Price Wise“ is currently being tested. The browser add-on lets consumers track the price of products across five major storefronts in the U.S. If you’re shopping online, and on a budget, you’re probably waiting for the big holiday discounts that are sure to come. Using this plugin, you can add products from sites like Amazon, Best Buy, eBay, Home Depot, Target or Walmart to a list. This allows you to compare their prices over time and potentially snag a great deal you might normally miss. And we know how frustrating that can be.
There are a lot of other comparison tools that have been around for a while so you can say that Firefox is doing a ‘me too’ thing. So why did Mozilla, the maker of of the Firefox, wait until the holiday shopping season to “test” this thing? It would have been wiser to be ready to rock n’ roll before the season hit. I’m just saying.
Adding the new extension to Firefox is fairly simple. Once you have signed into your Firefox account and have subscribed to the Test Pilot feature, you can add Price Wise to your browser.
