Ookong is a free extension for Google Chrome that shows you price history of any item on Amazon. You can see price history in a nice graphical form for past many months. In addition, you can also set price drop alerts, so that you get a notification whenever price of some item falls to your pre-defined price.
Ookong extension is powered by Ookong.com website. However, unlike other extensions that are just shortcut to websites, this price history extension for Chrome is a full featured extension that lets you do everything within the extension. You can search for any product on Amazon, see its price history, follow the product, and set alerts.
As you can see in screenshot above, Ookong nicely displays a graph that shows price history of your chosen product. You can see price history for 2 months, 4 months, and 6 months. In addition, it shows the highest price, lowest price, and current price of the product on Amazon.
Ookong works with Amazon USA, UK, France, Canada, Germany.
Note: Ookong only shows price and history from Amazon. It does not shows price comparison from other websites, like other price comparison extensions for Chrome do.
