The latest version of Amazon Deal Button features the following improvements:

  • Compatible with Firefox 4
  • Sort discounted products by customer review, best sellers, price and release dates.  You can change this setting in Options.  Default sort option is by customer review.
  • Added Top Rated section for Amazon US.  In addition to Bestsellers, Movers and Shakers, Hot New Releases, Most Gifted and Most Wished For sections, Amazon US recently launched a new section called Top Rated which allows online shoppers to browse products by customer reviews and by categories.  The products with the overall highest customer review among biggest customer population are ranked highest.
  • Updated deal links for Amazon US, UK and Germany.  Since last version was released about 4 months ago, a few changes have happened to Amazon US, UK and Germany site structure, these changes are reflected.
  • Search highlighted keywords using Amabay and compare Amazon and eBay prices based on your country setting.  For example, if your Amazon Deal Button country is set to UK, you will see Amazon.co.uk and eBay.co.uk price comparison results.
  • Look and Feel.  The menu item icons are now changed to a uniform yellow post-it icon instead of English letters used in previous versions.

Caveats related to sort by settings:

  • Sort by setting only applies to discounted products section
  • Sort by release date option is not available to all product categories, for example, DIY & Tools in Amazon UK

Firefox Addon: Amazon Deal Button 1.1.20100502 Version Released

FFAmznSaleAfter the first version of Amazon Deal Button was released, we received a couple of suggestions.  One of them was to simplify menu items and to allow users to customize discount percentage ranges.

That’s a really good point and we did achieve that in this new version.   In summary, major changes made in this new version are:

  • Choose your own range of discount percentage for any product categories on Amazon US and UK sites. For example, you can choose 20% or more as your preferred discount range, thereafter all your clicks on discount links will lead you to see products 20% off or more on Amazon. You may change this setting any time and get desired discount percentage range immediately.
  • Bug Fix: when you use Small Icons options when you customize Firefox Toolbar, size of Amazon Deal Button will adjust accordingly.

The following flow chart (click to enlarge) shows how easy it is to customize range of discount percentages.
