The search for bargains in these troubled economic times is sending a growing number of people to the Internet to seek relief. That was especially so during the holiday shopping season, where sales numbers rose 10 percent during November and December, while sales at stores rose just 2.7 percent.

Amazon.com is among the online outlets that have flourished in the recent market. It reported last week that both its profit and revenue grew in the latest quarter.
