UK gets an “Amazon toolbar”

UK gets an “Amazon toolbar”

This might be something which is in beta…which means that I might see and you might not. It can even mean that I see it on one computer and not on another, even using the same browser. That’s similar to the new Manage Your Kindle page (Major changes to MYK: bulk actions)…so far, I’ve only seen it in Silk on my Kindle Fire HDX, despite checking other devices and browsers.

That said, here is the link to the page I’m seeing:

Amazon at Your Fingertips

It requires Internet Explorer 8 or Firefox 3.

These seem to be the main features:

  • Search Amazon
  • Add to Wish List
  • My Amazon (I’m guessing that’s account information, such as tracking your orders and payment information
  • Bestsellers
  • New releases
  • Settings

Intriguingly, according to this

FAQ…Frequently Asked Questions

page, you could use the Settings to reset it so it pointed to another Amazon site…although they don’t specifically mention

My guess?

They are sort of beta-testing it with the UK, and that we’ll get it in the USA before too long.

If you  test it now, though, and are able to set it to, I’d appreciate you letting me know. 🙂 I’m not using a compatible browser right now, or I’d test it myself.

I think this could be a big hit! There are so many times I go to Amazon to check something, and this might make it a lot easier. That, in turn, may help Amazon make even more sales. 😉
