    Property Bee equivalent

    I used to love Property Bee, a widget for firefox that tells you the history of a property on right move (when first listed, price changes, etc).

    Unfortunately it is no longer supported on the latest firefox. Does anyone have an equivalent tool or website that will do this?

    It's a shame it wasn't maintained.

    I still use Property Bee and now keep an old copy of Firefox on my computer at the latest version supported by Property Bee (and I've disabled updates so that it doesn't do it in the background). Its not ideal, but its the only way that I can continue to use it

    I too use an old version of Firefox so that I can use Property Bee. I did find a couple of other downloads that were supposed to be alternatives but neither were very good.

    If you use Chrome there's an extension you cab download called Property Tracker I think. This only shows price movements up or down.

    I've created a browser plugin that covers most of what Property Bee used to, plus some other bits. You can find details and install links here:

    I'm actively improving it and I have some updates coming soon. If you have any suggestions though please do let me know (here or by email).

    Hi Simon

    Thanks for the recommendation.

    I tried it as a chrome extension, and on rightmove, clicked on the widget only for it to say I need to register and login.

    Firstly, neither links are working in the widget. 

    Secondly, why do I need to login to access this information? This has put me off and I imagine will be a point of friction for many users.

    Thanks for your feedback.  I'll retest the register/login links today - they used to work!

    Some features require a login (which is completely free) - for example email alerts when things change and providing personalised history.  I'll investigate whether some limited functionality could be provided without a login though.

    "I'll investigate whether some limited functionality could be provided without a login though." - I think that would be beneficial for a lot of users.

    I am a UX designer working on websites and apps on a daily basis and I see this a lot on. The primary goal should be to get people using your product with as little friction as possible, and then once they in, offer incentives for them to join/sign up. So in your case, the incentive could be to receive email alerts. This way, users get a chance to try your product and see if they feel comfortable giving their personal info. Asking someone to register and give their details to a company they have never heard of, without having trialed the product may put some people off, regardless if free or not. 

    Just my 2 pence!

    I completely agree, it's tricky trying to work out where the line should be though.

    I've released a new version (1.7) of the plugin (for Chrome and Firefox) that should fix the register/login links in Chrome but also improves the UI.  Please do give it a go and let me know what you think?

    If you struggle getting an old version of FireFox there's a browser called Waterfox that the Property Bee plugin still works in.

    I have been using 'Property Tracker' on Chrome - but I'm going to try out @simonp 's plugin.
