Hi Product Hunt, First off, thanks @bramk for hunting The Vegan Filter! I’m Isabella, founder of Xarista, and tech girl behind The Vegan Filter. We help people find faster what they are looking for when shopping online. Here’s the problem we had, and a first cut of a solution we thought of. Problem When I go to a shopping site, it takes time and effort to find what I’m REALLY looking for. I set filters manually to narrow down the product range to my needs and wants. E.g. that I look for VEGAN products. I do this over and over again, on various sites - and hope that over time these sites get smarter. 😩 If I could say once that I look for VEGAN products – this would take a good amount of clicking and searching away. It’s a pretty consistent requirement and plays into a lot of what I buy (groceries, fashion, beauty,…). Solution Have ✅VEGAN filters set for me when I browse. And that’s when The Vegan Filter was born. It sets vegan filters: - Across sites – when the extension is switched on, it stays on - In a transparent way – there is an on-screen note that The Vegan Filter is active on a site and when filters are set - It works regardless of whether I’m logged in or logged out on the shopping site It helps me to: ✅ Find vegan products faster ✅ Have confidence in new products I come across ✅ Cut out the noise of tempting other products :D It takes 3 clicks to be up and running. No signup required. Status The Vegan Filter currently works on an initial set of UK shopping sites. We were keen to get this first version out for feedback as soon as possible, and build from there. Thanks for your thoughts on The Vegan Filter! 🙏 Any questions, please ask.
@isabellaaberle The Vegan Filter looks neat. Definitely helps to have a button at your fingertip instead of having to figure out where the filter is.
@jitsalunke Couldn't agree more - but hey, I might be biased. ;) Worth noting that you don't even need to switch the filter on per site. If it's on, it stays on across sites (if the sites are supported).
Thank you for this Isabella! When do you think there will be Amazon support?!
@vhmth Hi Vinay- like your thinking! :) We're very much user-led. Surprisingly, Amazon didn't come up that often when speaking to prospective users. However, that might well change as the product is now live and hence more tangible. In the current version users have the option to vote for sites to be supported next. Will be exciting to see which sites get most votes.

Love the ease of set up and that it then makes searching, shopping.

Pros:

Great way to make vegan ‘default’ for you online.

Cons:

Nothing to improve upon - the way of the future!

This product is geared towards vegans, yes but this is also great for those non-vegans (like me) who have friends and family who are vegans! Using this extension when purchasing ingredients for that party means we will never go wrong! This extension for me equals a massive satisfying "sigh"!

Pros:

Fantastic time saver! Intuitive and just what is required in this hyper-customised world!

Cons:

None at all!

Tried this out for a few days and loving it so far

Pros:

Great idea, even without being Vegan I see lots of other use-cases to expand onto (keto diet, bio, etc)

Cons:

Would love to get recommendations on where to buy things from, existing deals, etc so that I don't need to spend time doing research myself
