Together with the recent program update 9.0.2016, AVAST also updated the free Chrome plugin avast! Online Security. The latest update added a completely new feature called avast!

Basically you go to your favourite online store and go to some specific product. avast! SafePrice search the other online retailers (including eBay) in the background and if the lower price is found, you will get the pop-up ‘Lower prices found!’ with all details. In the orange tab you will get the best deal, while the others are listed in the offers tab.
If you find this feature a bit obtrusive, you can disable it for 24 hours for a) all sites, or b) just the site you are currently viewing by clicking on the settings icon and selecting one of the options.
