It's the fact that the developer does not divulge this info, that people find disingenuous, more than the referral itself

better classified as referral-ware

Why? It doesn't cost you any extra money!

This fixation with people who put referral links into their software is rather unhealthy, methinks.

nice for browsing maybe, but ultimately you still have to use a web browser to buy your stuff. i just don't see what this offers that a web browser doesn't, but i do see what a web browser offers that this doesn't.

Great widget, beautifully designed. Makes swapping between searches in different stores a snap too. Who cares if the guy makes a cent or two?

the issue isnt the "cent or two" it's about saying what happens up front. it's not freeware, it's referralware, so say that.

seems like an extra step to me. instead of going to Dashboard, why not just go to your browser?

Sorry? Pressing F12, or clicking on Safari, waiting for it to load, then entering Amazon's url, waiting for that to load, and then searching... One is clearly quicker.

please, that just isn't true. does f12 read you mind and present you with your search results?

a more accurate description is: pressing f12, enter your search, wait for safari to load, then wait for amazon to load.

that is assuming you let the widget hog screen space/system resources all the time (i know it doesn't take up processor resources but it still takes memory). otherwise you also need to click around to drag the widget out.

also some people have it so that their search bar goes to amazon, that is quickest. OR if they search amazon enough to use the widget they have amazon bookmarked and dont have to enter the url as you suggest.

but were are talking about a second difference here. which is the best arguement for not clutter your computer and handing someone a chunk of change because they wrote a basic piece of java.

considering people get referal money from making this rather simple widgets, how many do you think we will see?

i guess no less than 10.

the real question is whether it is ethical to not let people know that amazon is paying these people for referals?

my gut tells me people should know.
