Added screenshots to Features page.
Updated site menu structure.
Major source code decrufting, cleanup, and documentation in progress.
Fixed bug in Wishlist importer that tracked the Amazon price with the New availability, and updated all Camels created with this bug to track Amazon availability.
Added backend support for 30 day expiration of camels, user interface to follow.
Made the camel update script less of a resource hog, and run about 20mins faster per update.
Fixed bugs in which deleted camel constraints were still active in determining camel huggability.
Added Amazon API request/response caching to help debug price errors.
Renamed "quit tracking" to "stop tracking" in the dropdown menu below your list of camels.
Added protip at the top of your camels page.
Made camel tracking pages more efficient and reuse existing code.
Added title above price history graph on product and camel tracking pages.
Changed image popup graphics to load from proper server.

Hey guys, another update this week! This time around I fixed the Greasemonkey script so that it detects more product pages, and cleaned up its UI a bit. You can see how it looks here:



This is a mandatory upgrade, so if you want to get the embedded price history charts, you need to install it. Click here to install the latest version of the camelcamelcamel Greasemonkey script. You can visit the GM script's info page here.

Other changes include a new site header, updated about page, and updated price history charts.

I like the clean design of the site, and the functionality of it, although I don't use amazon so for the mean time at least I will be tracking the site instead :P

Congrats on the lifehacker article

http://lifehacker.com/5375601/the-ca...-the-best-deal

Quote:
Firefox only (Windows/Mac/Linux): Firefox extension The Camelizer adds a small button to online retailers Amazon, Newegg, and Best Buy that, when clicked, displays price history charts and item watch features to help you make a smart buy.

(Click the image above for a closer look.)

Once you've installed the experimental extension (the experimental part means you'll have to tick a checkbox agreeing that it could be unstable before you can install it), just start doing your normal shopping around on Amazon, Newegg, or Best Buy. You'll notice a small Camel button strip on the left of your browser. To bring up Camelizer's price history charts, just click the Camel button. As you can see in the screenshot above, on Amazon Camelizer compares Amazon's price history with third party new and used prices.

Camelizer also adds a Track This Product button to the supported sites that can help you keep an eye on a specific product and send you email or Twitter alerts when the price of the product you're tracking falls below a user-defined threshold.

The extension and the supporting web site (camelcamelcamel.com) are a little young, and as such sometimes light on data, but it's a great idea that could certainly come in useful for finding the best price and helping you make more informed purchasing decisions.

The Camelizer is a free Firefox extension, works anywhere the 'fox does.
