Notes from the site - “PriceGong is activated only on pre-defined sites. The sites list is updated from time to time, and is stored on your local machine. When you visit a site in that list, the PriceGong add-on sends the product information you are looking for to PriceGong servers in order to search for alternatives deals. When you search for a product in e-commerce sites, PriceGong may insert a small tag link inside the HTML page near the product price or near the product details. Clicking on a tag link will send the product details to PriceGong servers to compare prices for the product. If alternative prices or offers are found, they will be displayed in a PriceGong results window.”
