This is exactly what we need more of - plasmoids practical *and* simple enough for "everyday people" to use. Great job!

Thanks for this plasmoid!

Is there any way for you to enable a localization? I mean the item I follow in the German ebay is shown with in US Dollars instead of Euros.

Thank your for your question.
I have plans to show price in the currency of the site on which the item was listed and make possible to choice currency by user.

 More generic?

Very nice that finally someone realize this idea. It is actually that there is a lot of plasmoids that does not have a real benefit, however I think something like this has a very big potencial. Maybe some more generic using Plugins ... I could imagine that now only ebay would be interesting, but also something to watch amazon prices etc.

Great plasmoid!

- it could be very interesting if user could add more items which could be scrolling like RSSNOW news do (arrows or mouse scrolling)

- what you said about currency is the most significant i believe. i think that krunner uses real-time values from ECB, so this should be easy for you.
Thanks again for your plasmoid

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
