Personalize shopping experience using AmazonAssist in Firefox

Amazon is the largest online retailer company in the United States. You can get almost anything from books to computers on Amazon. If you often shop online at Amazon, then you can get good bargains using the AmazonAssist add-on in the Mozilla Firefox web-browser.

The AmazonAssist add-on shows up at the bottom on the Firefox web browser and shows the related product searches as you lookup for a product in the search engines like Google, Bing or Yahoo!. The AmazonAssist add-on not only supports the major search engines but also many shopping websites like Walmart.
