Firefox Launches Two New Experimental Resources: Price Change Alerts From Online Retailers & Tool to Make Sharing Easier
From The Mozilla Blog:
Today, just in time for the holiday shopping season, the Firefox Test Pilot team is introducing Price Wise and Email Tabs — the latest experimental features designed to give users more choice and transparency when shopping online. These game-changing desktop tools are sure to make shopping a breeze with more options to save, share, track and shop. We’ve also made a few updates to the Test Pilot program itself to make it even easier to become a part of the growing Firefox users testing new features.
Price Wise – Track prices across major retailers and get notified when the price drops
Email Tabs – Save and share content seamlessly as you browse the web
With Email Tabs, you can select and send links to one or many open tabs all within Firefox in a few short steps…How about saving the links for future reference? Email Tabs also lets you copy multiple tabs to Clipboard for outside sharing. The feature only works with Gmail right now, but we’re working on adding more clients in the near future. This will be seamless if you’re logged into Gmail already, if not you can always log in once you’re prompted.
