Latest Listings & Item Hiding
Prospector can show you just the items listed between your search
updates, however frequently or infrequently that might be. You can
scan the listings, pick out the items that interest you, and you'll
never need to see the items you've passed over again.
If working this way doesn't suit you, Prospector allows you to
hide items as an alternative. Items you've rejected and hidden will
not be shown to you again.
Quick Search Toolbar Customizability
You can add your favorite site searches to the Quick Search toolbar for
convenient access. For example, if you add searches to sites like Pricegrabber, About, Epinions, Half,
Overstock and Yahoo, you'll be able to
search all of them without retyping the search query. Do research
and comparison-shop easily.
As you inspect eBay listings, Prospector automatically takes
note of the sellers. This information is gathered to help you discover
new items of interest. A simple but effective ranking is applied:
the more items you've seen from a seller, the higher they rank.
Prospector then provides links to view the sellers' other listings.
Extraordinary opportunities call for unordinary tools!
