New Mouser.com web search tool
I will say that, up to now, I have much preferred to use AllElectronics.com versus Mouser.com - mainly because I've found Mouser to be information overload.
This morning I received an email from Mouser.com about a new web browser add-on for both IE and Firefox called the Mouser Search Accelerator... it'll basically allow you to highlight a component - a word, a part #, name, etc, - and then, without leaving the page you're on, perform a search of Mouser.com. Pretty slick, and I think I'll give it a try soon. Let me know what you think if you give it a spin.
More information on it can be found here - it is something that must be downloaded and installed on your computer, btw.
Okay, I installed it on my Firefox (3.6) browser - as you can see, after highlighting an old part # from a previous post, I right click and select to search on Mouser.com - a little fly-out window appears with links to the part and a price... and look at that! The price hasn't changed since I ordered the part back in April 2010.
