The price comparison browser extension InvisibleHand just added a new beta feature that automatically finds the cheapest flight when you search on sites like Priceline, Expedia, or individual airlines.Until now, the extension would only compare products from search engines or retail sites like Best Buy or Amazon.
The flight feature is automatic and easy to use. When you input your desired flight dates and destinations on any travel site, Invisible Hand automatically begins searching for better deals.
A small pop up bar displays the available flights and tells you how much you could save by switching to each one. You can also adjust dates and destinations within the extension to find better flights and prices.
We tested the new version of Invisible Hand and it worked perfectly. Within seconds, we had more options than Priceline offered from a variety of airlines, even though our original search began on Jet Blue’s home page.
Invisible Hand is compatible with dozens of major airlines, and the developer promises to add more as the beta version continues to grow.
