Mozilla announces two new test features – Price Wise and Email tabs – for its Firefox browser software. While Price Wise add-on gives you a heads-up about price drops of items in online stores, Email Tabs is for sending links to people more easily.
Price Wise spots price drops on things you may eyeing in on Amazon, Walmart, Best Buy, eBay, and Home Depot. Price Wise collects data about the products you choose to track such as prices change frequency, size, and the accuracy of that information.
The idea isn’t very catchy, nor is it new. Plenty of other extensions, such as Keepa and CamelCamelCamel, do the same thing or even more sometimes. These services don’t just alert you to price changes, but shows you a history of pricing for an item that will allow you to see if the deal is worth the wait. However, there is one interesting side note here – Mozilla is using AI to power Price Wise. The technical details are kept away from consumers as of now.
Email Tabs, on the contrary, is a more novel idea. Emailing is apparently still the most popular way to share links and Email Tabs simply makes the job easier for you. It lets you create beautiful emails from your open tabs to save them for later or share them. You can use Email Tabs to automatically send along links, screenshots, or even the text from articles.
Email Tabs currently works with Gmail and the team is working to bring it to other popular webmail providers as well.
