Picture Fox for Amazon – brilliant Firefox plugin makes Amazon shopping so much nicer [Freeware]

picturefox6

We love Amazon to bits, but the one annoying part about shopping there is having to peer at tiny thumbnail photos of products the whole time, trying to get an idea of what’s on offer.

Well it seems we’re not alone in this, because someone’s come up with the brilliant Picture Fox Plugin for Amazon which is a plugin for the Firefox browser which gives instant large image previews of thumbnails, as well as easy to use picture galleries if there are multiple images on show.

The overall result is you can browse and view details of products on Amazon really quickly and easily, and with instant access to any higher resolution images included on the product pages or galleries. Of course if there are no high res images, the improvement is limited to fast scrolling and the hover, but even these two features are well worth having if you want to get a better idea of something quickly.

Check out the quick 1 min video walkthrough below.

You can download the plugin directly from here.
