Wow, Nicola’s just told me she’s trying mysupermarket.co.uk.. It seems to pull the data off four supermarkets (tesco, asda, sainsburys, and occado), and provides a completely alternative interface onto ordering online from them. Which is GREAT because Tesco’s own website doesn’t bloody work in firefox unless you change the browser ID to IE7.. (but it still has continual crapness that look like they can’t cope with the userload).
You choose a supermarket to shop with, and it lets you compare the prices available against all the others. When you order, it submits it to the chosen supermarket and they deliver as normal.
I’m dead impressed with this: anyone remember that alternative Odeon cinema website that provided an alternative interface that was not shit? Odeon killed it.
Of course we’ve not actually submitted the order yet….
