    That's their own deal but some of them have it where you can have your own price comparison.

    dealtime got bought by shopping.com.

    Depends on what are you looking for.
    Pricegrabber is growing in popularity for sure.

    most are developed in house or in some cases, i know that some people hijacked another company's code and improved on it.

    you forgot to mention pricewatch for computer components

    I'm sure they all use a custom in-house solution. There isn't something available that you can just purchase or download of this magnitude. Otherwise Shopping.com wouldn't have sold for over $500 million to eBay.

    Ick, I can't believe they're still in business with the mediocre service they're providing lately. They're infested with scam merchants who run various sites out of the same warehouse. They aren't even a true price comparison as they don't normalize their UPC's and models. How they're still a household name is beyond me.
