Amazon Search Navigation

If you like searching for things on Amazon but find the search navigation tucked too far down...

Amazon Search Navigation

If you like searching for things on Amazon, but find when you sort low priced to high priced you just end up clicking and scrolling for a while till you find the page that is the actual product you want and not some "holding device" etc..

TaperMonkey is a great chrome extension which allows you to make modifications to the DOM of any site that comes in the browser. With it you can pretty much do whatever you would like in terms of modding your front end experience.

I started by wasting a bunch of time creating my own navigation. This involved some xpath calls along with some math. It was only once I finished scripting the whole thing I realized it could all have been done with a simple copy pasta.

Anyways, here is the code, be sure to use the final branch, but if you want to see what I came up with before my realization, check out the dev branch.
