VGPC Price Tool: Firefox Add-on For Ebay & Amazon Shopping

We just created an add-on for Firefox that helps you find the lowest prices when buying video games on eBay, Amazon, and Half.

The add-on shows the VGPC Price directly on eBay, Amazon, and Half pages and shows you which site has the lowest price on average. The info appears automatically whenever you browse a video game page on any of these sites. Here's what the pages look like when using the feature:

Amazon Sample With VGPC Price Tool

Ebay Sample With VGPC Price Tool

Half Sample With VGPC Price Tool

The VGPC Price is the seven day average price online so you will know how much to spend or bid. The lowest price is the site with the lowest average price over the same time period (with a handy link if you want to buy there instead).

Please read some reviews from our beta testers and then Install the add-on. Be sure to let us know what you think.

This is really, really cool!

Any plans to make a version that works with Firefox 2? v3 isn't stable on my system.

thesimplicity - I'm glad you like the tool. I have been using it myself for the last month and I like it more than I thought I would. And I had pretty high hopes for it since I helped create it (most of it was done by my partner).

I'm not sure if we will add Firefox 2 capabilities or not. I'll have my programmer answer it more indepth. Only 10% of our users have FF 2 so it probably isn't a huge priority. But it might be pretty easy to create if it already works on Firefox 3.
