+MG was a 2 days project to develop an extension for Firefox.

+MG! or: Plus image.

The project was developed by mim.Armand in a hack event. The event was organized by e-commerce web-site CDiscount but extension itself is capable to do its job just in any other on-line shopping web-site and since CDiscount wanted to have the extension for free (!) I decided to not release it, not for CDiscount anyway! so it's available to be released for any other interested company. The extension will grab additional images of the product and in the product page, from internet and show them just beside other images in the website itself (with a little indication that shows these photos are from external sources). according to research provided by NRF (National Retail Federation reports) this mechanism will increase the buying rate and facilitate the choice process by the users by a rate of 53 to 67 percents. Images shown in this article were used for the presentation of the project (and won't make any sense outside of the context of the event!) but you can download the provided pdf file for more information, I will add the link to the extension itself as well as soon as I release it (if I ever do!), you can also look at the video of the extension in function.
