Ebay Negs! The Ebay Negative Feedback Checking Firefox Extension has been updated!

Ebay Negs! is the Extension I wrote for Mozilla Firefox, that lets you check all the Negative feedback an Ebay User has received. And now a cool programmer dude called Guido has kindly updated the Ebay Negs! Firefox extension with some cool new functionality. You now no longer need to highlight the text on a page before selecting EbayNegs, you can now just right click on an Ebay Username Link, or if you are on an auction page just right click on the page and then select Ebay Negs. The old functionality is still there too. Another new feature is that you can select whether Ebay Negs opens the Toolhaus site in the current window or in a new tab.

If you have the old version of the extension installed you can update it by going to the Tools menu then Extensions, then click the Update button, then you should be able to update the Extension easily. If you havent yet installed this extension, just Click Here to Install Ebay Negs! For Firefox

My first Firefox Extension - Ebay Negs! - Lets you check the negative feedback an eBay user has received.

I just read the brilliant tutorial at Roachfiend.com on how to write extensions for Firefox and I decided it would be fun to write one myself, So I decided to convert my eBay negative feedback checker bookmarklet into a Firefox Extension, and the roachfiend tutorial helped out a great deal :) It was pretty straightforward to convert, and you can try it out here: Ebay Negative Feedback Firefox Extension

Any feedback gratefully received :)

UPDATE 19/1/2005 A new updated version (0.6) of this extension has been released, thanks to a cool dude called Guido who supplied some brilliant code to extend Ebay Negs' functionality. If you have got the old version (0.5) installed you can use Firefox's update feature to update it to the new version. To do this go to the "Tools/Extensions" menu, then click the "Updates" button. This version allows you to right click on Ebay username links without having to highlight them first, it also alllows you to rightclick anywhere on an ebay auction page and it will try to automatically work out the username.

How to pay less for items on EBay and still win the auctions - Auction Sniper

I just discovered Auction Sniping, what is auction sniping, its setting a computer to automatically bid at the very last few seconds of auction on an item, in order to win the item without having to bid too much for it. I used the auction sniping site called AuctionSniper.com and the very first time I used it I won the auction i wanted to bid on, and got it really cheap too, you should give it a try, and if you use EBay a lot, you will save lots of money! They give you 3 free tries to start with, but you can get more credits by referring your friends to the site, or you can pay for extra credits, its up to you.

Ebay Negative Feedback Bookmarklet - Lets you check all negative comments left for a user.

Ive written a new bookmarklet, this one interfaces with Toolhaus' excellent ebay feedback checker, to show all of a users negative/neutral feeback remarks.

EBay show Negative Feedback Bookmarklet (Just drag the link to your web browser's "link" bar (should work on both IE and mozilla/firefox), then when you are viewing a users profile page, click the bookmarklet and you will be transferred to a page listing all the negative/neutral feedback that has been left for that user.

*UPDATE Ive written a new version of the bookmarklet 02/11/2004*

I've Just Written a new bookmarklet for finding the negative feedback left for a user, this one lets you select an ebay username on any page where one is mentioned and if you then click the bookmarklet it will take you to the toolhaus page showing the negative feedback for that user, if no text is selected, it pops up a dialog box asking you to enter an ebay username.

This bookmarklet has been tested on both Firefox and I.E, not sure if it will work on Opera or not. You can test this bookmarklet out on this very page, by highlighting some text on the page, then clicking the link below, or if you click the link below without selecting any text, you should be presented with a javascript dialog box asking you to enter an Ebay username. You can "install" this bookmarklet into your browser by simply right clicking on it and adding it to your bookmarks, or if you want quicker access to it, try dragging the link on to your web browsers link toolbar.

New Version of the Ebay Negative Feedback Checker Bookmarklet

Hope someone finds this useful! :D

Further Update R.A Brugioni has kindly pointed out the bookmarklet doesnt work if you are using windows XP sp 2 and I.E6, the best thing for you to do in that case is switch to using Firefox, which is a much better web browser! :D

Yet Another Update Ive converted the bookmarklet into a Firefox Extension, you can read more about it here
