"It's a must have if you do much online shopping"

February 23, 2006  |  By goldengreeke

 |  Version: PriceBud Price Comparison Toolbar 1.0 b

Pros

Now shoppers can compare prices between all the major price comparison engines with just one click. I am not a lover of tool bars and try to avoid them, but this one is 100 % safe, with no adware or spyware. If you want to save money shopping, you need this. Try it...it's FREE!

Cons

Only works for IE, and is missing the shoppers who only use Opera and Firefox.

"Its a nice little toolbar for IE...but I don't do much online shopping."

February 23, 2006  |  By CableguyTK

 |  Version: PriceBud Price Comparison Toolbar 1.0 b

Pros

Its free.

It has no adware or spyware.

You can uninstall it from within the toolbar.

It has a popup blocker and has the ability to highlight search terms.

Searches all the major price comparison sites, like MySimon, PriceGrabber, Froogle, etc.

Has a bunch of hotlinks in a menu for a host of stores, organized by what they sell. They seem like a bunch of trusted stores, so this may be useful for someone looking for a good store to buy certain types of products.

Cons

Its really a niche type of toolbar. Since it only has the ability to search price comparison sites its either you need it or you don't. Every once in a blue moon I use PriceGrabber to make sure what I'm buying from a store is a good deal, but other than that I really never use price comparison sites, so I really have no need for it. You really have to have a heavy use of those type of sites to find the value in this toolbar.

When you search using the toolbar, an advertisement is placed in the IE window, spanning the bottom of it, as if it were a frame in the page. Compare this against manually searching the site where this frame is not put in.

Customization is quite limited. You can change the place it searches and choose which of the THREE buttons to show. And thats about it.

I would give this a 4/5 stars since its not a bad product, but its a niche toolbar, and in today's internet explorer world, you really have to make a toolbar which will play to the masses. So in the case of this software it really doesn't play to the masses...either you shop or you don't. Not everyone shops...however I can honestly say that everyone uses search engines like Google and stuff, which is why you see toolbars like Google and Yahoo! really succeeding.

It would probably be a good idea for the developer to have two search bars, one for general search engines and one for the price searching. A toolbar that doesn't make use of general search engines is't one that will be accepted very widely.
