nothing extra and took me to Amazon for the filtering I needed to do. I would much rather that with an affiliate link for you than all this business needing to work in your shell that you have created. And it seems like the search isn't as good... for instance, CD's and Vinyl section, when searching for 'vinyl -single' I get so many CD's now. I guess it is back to URL play time for me.

Let me see if I can help you get all the functionality that you feel is missing. I'd like to be able to keep this design since I feel it really is an improvement over what the old site used to do. First of all (I don't know if you noticed) once the old site kicked you over to Amazon and you attempted to page through results, some custom filters would be lost. That was super annoying and practically eliminated any added value that my site provided. In addition, the new format where I display the results within my own "shell" allows me to enhance them in so many different ways: the price history link to camelcamelcamel, the review quality link to fakespot, shortcuts to different ways to sort reviews, comparison to other websites... The list of value-add features will only grow. So while I see how for your particular use case simplicity is valuable, but for many power shopping tasks I have to stick with this model. So, once again, I'd like to help you get what you need while keeping all the new features. I really didn't expect to lose any of the old functionality, so I beli eve there is a way to accomplish what you are trying to do. One idea I have regarding the reason you are seeing to many results: are you filtering by "Sold by Amazon only"? That is a filtering option available about a third of a way down the filter panel. I really appreciate your input though.
