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.

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

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.

8. eBay Live

A miniature version of eBay’s full site, this pop-up sidebar allows for a quick view of sold items, watched items, and the like. This eBay browser plugin can only be used on Firefox, and is perfect for keeping track of all activity in one convenient place.

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

When purchasing from another country, this extension allows users to shop on any eBay storefront in their own currency. It takes the pain out of researching currency conversions and can be used with Firefox and Chrome.

Being armed with these eBay plugins can help even a novice user become more proficient at buying and selling on one of the most popular online marketplaces.

11 Google Chrome Apps and Features to Help You Get More Done with Less Effort

11 Google Chrome Apps and Features to Help You Get More Done with Less Effort

In today’s fast-paced and never-ending busy world, we are overwhelmed by tasks that need to be completed by tight deadlines. With so much technology it is difficult to find the right tools to help boost our efficiency. And, many tools get obsolete so its essential to stay up-to-date to know when you will have to make adjustments to these tools. Independently of where you work, there’s a good chance that you have to be working on a PC or a laptop.

Do you are feel like you do not have enough time, or cannot accomplish much as of late? It is recommended to take a step back and look at the big picture. Also, you want to explore new and innovative ways to improve productivity.

In this article, I outline 11 features and apps within the Chrome browser that can help you do just that.

Minimizing Tabs

Let’s face it we all have more than a dozen tabs opened on our computers. One neat trick to still keep most of them open is to turn them into pinned tabs. On Google Chrome you can right-click the tab and select “Pin Tab” option. This turns the tab into an icon enabling you to continue multitasking.

Pinning a tab anchors the tabs on the left of your toolbar; a great benefit of the “Pin Tab” feature is that you can’t close these tabs accidentally since the “X” disappears after pinning them.

Incognito Mode

Google Chrome is a very easy-to-use and intuitive. But, Google does collect our browsing data; so to remedy this, you can use Incognito Mode. This feature does not keep your browsing or download history. You can enable or access it in three different ways:

  1. Press Ctrl/Command+shift+N
  2. Select File Menu and choose New Incognito Window
  3. Download extension New Incognito Window

This feature is very handy if you’d rather not have your browsing history stored and utilized for future advertisement or suggested pages.

Save Webpages as PDF Files

Have you ever browsed interesting or important information and then forgot to bookmark or save it in “favorites”, making it impossible to find again? Chances are you have done this on a number of occasions.

Thankfully, there is an easy solution. You can save webpages as PDF files. On your keyboard, press control/command+p and you will be able to save webpages as PDFs.

Open Recently-closed Tabs

Ever had dozens of tabs opened and all of a sudden your browser shuts down? It has probably happened to all of us. You can easily recover all of your tabs using two approaches. Don’t panic if this happens because there is a workaround and solution for it.

One is by pressing Ctrl/CMD+Shift+T.

The other approach is to click on the three vertical dots on your browser and hover over “History”.

Solve Mathematical Problems

Google’s Chrome browser doesn’t just search for relevant and updated information. It is also capable of performing some mathematical problems. Within the omnibox (Chrome’s address or URL bar), you can perform mathematical exercises.

For example, if you are struggling with percentages you can search 20 percent of x amount and it will instantly provide a result. Pretty handy, right?!

Play Media Files

Are you frequently met with difficulties when playing or watch a video files? Well, once again Chrome comes to the rescue. You can can listen or play videos from all sorts of movie or music files (mp3, mp4, .mov, .mkv, .ogv, .webm, .wav, etc.) by simply dragging the file into the search bar.

In addition, you can view images, PDF files and Microsoft Office files, too.

Navigate Swiftly Between Tabs

With all of those tabs opened comes great navigation responsibilities. Rather than clicking through every tab, you can use shortcut keys like Ctrl+Tab to navigate all of the different tabs. Also, you are able to navigate to the first tab by pressing Ctrl-1, Ctrl-2, and so on. If you want to switch to the very last tab, press Ctrl-9.

Stay Focus(e)d

Computers nowadays have awesome capabilities.

Sometimes we like to get work done, but let’s face it, we’re all human. We sometimes procrastinate by visiting a website we really like, or maybe take a break with watching a flick on Netflix, a video on YouTube or browsing Facebook.

With Chrome’s StayFocusd extension, you can truly stay focused and get more done in less time.

This extension naturally helps you stay more productive by limiting the amount of time you spend on websites. You can set the time and it will automatically block those sites after a certain period.

Grammarly for Editing

Grammarly is a must have, and it’s really a complete powerhouse. Grammarly helps you check your grammar and spelling for everything you write online.

You can use it professionally or as a student, which will make the editing process much easier and more efficient. Furthermore, it can automatically check for typos when you send an email, type a Tweet, or post a Facebook comment. It’s like having your own personal copyeditor!

Loom

There are times that words in an email or written text in a chat app will just not convey the right meaning.

There is a saying that a picture is worth a thousand words. Well, the same is true of videos.

With Loom, you can capture, narrate and immediately share video recordings of your screen, which will help coworkers understand issues you are facing, or to easily convey an explanation on screen. Plus, with video you will be able to easily walk people through a process, and you can use it to create simple how-to videos.

Chrome Calendar Extension

No matter what your level of responsibility is at your job, Google Calendar is another essential resource to have at your fingertips.

Specifically, you can have this extension added as an icon in the toolbar of your browser, which I highly recommend. Once you add the extension to your browser, you can check for upcoming events with a single click without leaving your current page.

Final Thoughts

Google Chrome has definitely evolved from its inception. As you can see you have a very powerful tool that comes as a free installation and is loaded with dozens of capabilities. The above listed Chrome apps can resolve some of the most common obstacles to your time management and productivity.
