Finds stuff way faster than going to the site - then pops open a Safari window that attempts to redirect and then gets an error message about something being null.

This happens for every country with every product.

No single search result can be found @ Amazon.de.

I'm in the US and don't even speak German, and I can get results from .de easily by hitting the "i" and selecting your country's flag.

Version info shows 1.0 even though link says 1.2, is this really the correct version?

I just downloaded Fast_Amazon-1p2f.zip and the widget inside shows version 1.0 when you click the info icon in the widget. It also still doesn't let me click on a link to open the appropriate Amazon page in Firefox.

In version 1.1 I can no longer click the search results to open products in my web browser (Firefox). When I try to click on a link, it just opens a blank page in the web browser. This worked correctly in the previous version.

Totally rockin. Book thumbs and descriptions show right there in the Widget. I've bought a book with it already. Faster and easier than the regular web interface. Very convenient.
