Support GNOME by shopping at Amazon

Notice: This post is more than a year old. It may be outdated.


I have an ever burgeoning lmental list of things I’ve always meant to post and the following has been one of them.

The GNOME foundation provide Amazon referral links for your browser. That is, every time you search for a product using the referral link and end up buying something GNOME get a paid a referral fee based on the amount  you spend. The best bit is that it costs you absolutely nothing extra but helps keep GNOME in servers, ballpoint pens and developers.

And it’ll make you feel good.

I’ve used it as my default Amazon search for good few months now and it’s an easy way to ‘give’ something back in appreciation of all the great things that GNOME do – without it even needing any effort on your part!

Firefox & Chrome/ium

Install the GNOME Amazon plug-in directly in Firefox by clicking the link below and agreeing to to the pop-up that follows.

Chrome/ium users can use the GNOME referral plug-in by installing the “Firefox plug-in” as above.

To use start typing ‘Amazon’ into the smart bar and then hit the tab button to enable the Amazon GNOME-specific search: –image

Other browsers & methods

Users of other browsers, such as Epiphany, can add Smart Bookmarks from the GNOME site.

If you don’t fancy installing anything extra but still want to help use the GNOME Amazon store @ where you can browse for items directly on the page.image
