Add-ons, also know as extensions or apps, for your Internet browser (Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, Opera or Safari) are all like little modules that make your browser do more than display web pages. Download one of these browser add-ons to save money while you're shopping online to see price comparisons, get coupons, price alert and more.

These money-saving apps work while you shop, and they are available free because the developer collects a small commission from the retailer when you make a purchase.

To find and download these apps, go to your browser's site for add ons:
