Find Cheaper Deals on Books With Book Burro

Book Burro is a Firefox add-on that takes the hassle out of looking for better deals on books.

After installing it (and restarting Firefox, natch), just head to Amazon, Buy.com, or a similar store and find the listing page for the book you want. Then click the Book Burro button that appears in the upper-left corner. In a matter of seconds you'll see the prices from half a dozen other stores, including Abebooks, Amazon Marketplace, and Half.com.

Venture into Book Burro's settings (by clicking the little wrench icon on its toolbar) and you'll see the option to add even more stores: Barnes & Noble, PaperBackSwap, and so on. Even cooler, Book Burro can check to see if your local library has the book.
