Firefox Test Pilot Price Wise Experiment Rolls Out
The new Firefox Test Pilot Price Wise tool works simply enough. Participants simply add various items to lists, from different retailers. When an item’s price drops, the user receives a desktop notification. Clicking on the link opens the product page.
Currently, the new Firefox Test Pilot Price Wise feature is only available in the United States, with retailers Best Buy, eBay, Amazon, Walmart, and The Home Depot. (Although, Firefox says it will add more in the future.)

Firefox recently introduced a new privacy feature which stops cookies from tracking users from site to site. It also introduced a tool which alerts users to data breaches back in September.
