10 Stellar Browser Plugins To Assist With Your eBay Online Auctions

Buying and selling on eBay is not only fun, but a great way to make some extra money or find items that are seemingly unreachable when shopping. Advanced users may already have their methods perfected, but adding in a browser plugin can ease the pain of daunting tasks like currency converting or price comparison.

1. Fast Search for eBay

Available for Chrome and Firefox, this extension helps you search very quickly. It will search eBay’s international sites, suggest searches, follow search configurations, watch listings, and so much more. It may be completely customized and is great for an eBay power user.

2. eBay

Of course eBay has its own plugin available on Chrome, Firefox, and Safari. It allows users to keep track of the items they are bidding on, as well as eBay’s daily deals. Users may also save searches and stay up to date with saved sellers.

3. SellerTab

This gives users an easy way to track all of their seller activity from one page. Installing the extension will allow the user to view their seller highlights each time they browse. They can also track new purchases and see how many items they need to ship out. It is a great way for sellers to stay organized on Chrome, Safari, and Firefox.

4. eBay Amazon Price Comparison

Here you will find the ability to get a side-by-side comparison of an item’s price on eBay and Amazon. It is as simple as searching for the item and the extension will show both of the marketplaces at the same time. This is helpful for the shopper that is keen on getting the best price. It is available on Chrome and Firefox.

5. My eBay Manager

Available on Chrome, Safari, and Firefox, this extension is great for the eBay buyer or seller that is super organized. All of the user’s activity can be shown at any given time. It is always signed in and is able to show all eBay listings and purchases any time, all in one place.

6. What’s it Worth?

This is a very helpful plugin available for Chrome, Firefox, iOS, and Android that can give users an idea of how much an item is really worth or what it will sell for on eBay. The way it works is by taking the average eBay price of similar items that have successfully sold in the previous weeks. This is a good tool to help determine whether it might be worth your time to sell an item on eBay.

7. eBay Negs!

Only on Firefox, using this extension allows the ability to view all of a seller’s negative feedback with a simple right-click. This is a good way to determine if a seller is worth purchasing from.

9. Snipe It

This is also known as Myibidder Auction Bid Sniper and is available for Chrome, Firefox, Android, and iOS. It allows bidders to “snipe” or place a bid on an item in the last few remaining seconds of the item’s auction. The button is installed and will appear on every eBay page to allow for easy sniping, all you have to do it tell it which products to snipe.

10. eBay Worldwide Currency Converter

How to Make Private Browsing on Safari Truly Private

How to Make Private Browsing on Safari Truly Private

There comes a time when we may be searching online and don’t want the browser to remember our footsteps. The reasons don’t always have to be what we obviously think of as the main reason; for example, sometimes, you may not want Safari to remember your passwords or prompt you to enter your password when surfing the web.

Whatever the reason, we may think that we are totally in the clear with Private Browsing on Safari and the other browsers on a Mac. However, a quick Terminal command can bring up every website you’ve visited. How do you do this? Also, how do you clear your tracks for good? We will provide both answers and more today.

    What Does Private Browsing Do?

    When activated, Private Browsing on Safari prevents your browsing history from being kept in the history tab of the application. Along with this, it doesn’t autofill information that you have saved in the browser. In this mode, you essentially become incognito and any references of previous use is essentially hidden when you are in private mode.

    For example: if you are on Facebook or filling out a form and some information or your login is already filled in in the spaces provided, this is called autofill. It’s activated by simply clicking Safari next to the Apple symbol in the menubar and selecting Private Browsing, then clicking “OK” to the prompt.

    The reasons behind private mode differ for each individual. While we won’t go into all of those reasons, one thing that is  important to remember is that private browsing doesn’t forget the websites you visit. As we will see later on, Macs keep a second copy of the websites you visit in either mode. If you are in frantic mode looking for a solution to this, look no further.

    The Terminal Archive

    While Safari does a good job of keeping your search history out of prying eyes in the history tab, there is a less-than-obvious way to view a full list of visited websites on Mac. This is done in Terminal; the command-line emulator that allows you to make changes to your Mac.

    Terminal is located in the Utilities folder on your Mac. Once activated, simply add the command:

    dscacheutil -cachedump -entries Host

    Once you hit “enter”, a list of the visited sites appear. Showing only the domains, the sites appear in a format of:

    Key: h_name :(website domain)ipv4 :1

    However, there’s no need to fear—there is a way you can clear this information from Terminal with a command that’s just as simple.

    Clearing Your Tracks

    Just as simply as you were able to enter the command to view the websites, you can clear the cache that Terminal showed you with the comamnd:

    dscacheutil -flushcache

    As the command denotes, this literally “flushes” the domains from Terminal. This does not prevent the record from continuing to be recorded for future sites, however, so if that’s an issue for you, repeat this process regularly.

    Other Browsers and Private Browsing

    Other browsers have this form of privacy mode for their service. They promise many of the same things as Safari, but they do not have the same Terminal issue due to how this command only presents websites visited on Safari (the browser Macs come shipped with).

    If you use Firefox, you’ll notice that its private mode is also known as Private Browsing. Chrome calls private mode Incognito, while Internet Explorer refers to it as InPrivate Browsing. Opera is the newest to the scene, denoting it as Private Tab. Safari is the oldest well-known browser with this feature.

    As you can see, despite Private Browsing not being 100% private, Terminal allows for your browser to be. In what ways has Terminal helped your life or allowed you to become more productive? Let us know in the comments below.
