Cool, but is there a way to categorize it & hide those categories I don't want to see?

How do you get it on the Firefox toolbar?? If I bookmarked it to the Bookmark Toolbar, I don't get the RSS feed. Only the link is bookmarked.

http://www.mozilla.org/product...ox/live-bookmarks.html

Check it there, they have a short tut on how to make it live bookmark.
But it does not come with auto-category though . It does not even show the price or whatever.

Does anyone have a solution to this?

That's a cool idea.

For those looking for an RSS reader for MS Windows, check out SharpReader.

Okay, I made a live bookmark in FireFox. Now when I go into bookmarks I can see the entire HUMONGOUS list, but what good does it do me? It seems like this is just another way for anand to make money from the referals (I don't know this for a fact, just seems logical)

yeah, still no prices either in firfox bookmark or sharpreader . . . and i know it's already sorted according to product type but having a clearer breakdown of categories (and then maybe key attributes, i.e. size or speed) would be a very helpful next step. good job tho . . . don't know who else's got plans for this but interesting . . . i'd be curious to know what the complete list of retailers queried is composed of . . .

I cleaned up the list a little bit better now (and more livebookmark friendly). When Mozilla updates Firefox a bit ill implement the description tag.

Let me know if it works!

thanks, categorization makes it look a lot better and easier to navigate. . . but now they're so long they get cut off by the width of firefoxes menu . . . is there a way to get the menu to auto expand depending on the length of the bookmark text so i could see the full listing ?

. . . . actually, i can see the full listing in firefox most easily from the bookmark manager

the bookmark sidebar works better

now if we could input hot deals posts, categorize, and update when dead or OOS.

I'm using Firefox 1.0PR, but I can't figure out how to use this page. When I click the link it says:
This XML file does not appear to have any style information associated with it. The document tree is shown below.

I *think* I'm looking for a button in the lower right hand corner that says RSS. I've seen this before when I use woot.
