PriceGrabber introduces a personal toolbar named “Ribbon”
Displayed at the bottom of each page of the PriceGrabber site, the so-called “Ribbon” is a sticky toolbar defined by PriceGrabber as:
The PriceGrabber Ribbon offers you quick and easy access to our features.
With the PriceGrabber Ribbon you can track recently viewed products, save favorites, set price alerts, and even compare product features side by side. We also let you see what your friends and others have recently liked on Facebook.
- Nice and polished design – that is slightly inconsistent with the rest of the PriceGrabber website. I hope this is the first bit of a more complete redesign (as hinted by Brian Smith).
- “Favorites products” / “Recently viewed” / “Price alerts”… Some quite common features that existed for a long time on PriceGrabber. Nice to see all those personal data grouped in a single and “always on” location.
- The real news is the Facebook layer : what have your friends liked on PriceGrabber ? What have other people liked on PriceGrabber? Nice features that are not too intrusive in terms of privacy… I really like that PriceGrabber only asks for email address when connecting using Facebook Connect: users feel in control…
- I like seeing this kind of feature: small, not really killing one but well-thought and perfectly implemented!
