Tux Machines (TM)-specific
I had reviewed Songbird close to two years back , and at that time Songbird was impressive but was bug ridden, lacked important features and certain degree of polishing which was expected from an application intended to be used on Desktops. Songbird 1.0 is an entirely different story altogether, Songbird 1.0 is mature, has slick interface and most importantly is stable enough to be used by newbiess.
Here in this article I try reviewing some of the important features of Songbird.
Songbird features a Simple and Sleek UI interface , which to some extent resembles interface of Apple iTunes.There is uncanny resemblance between Mozilla Firefox and Songbird in terms of functionality, because both of them are based on same Mozilla XUL platform. Like Mozilla Firefox you can open multiple tabs in Songbird, simultaneously browse Internet and manage music inside Songbird using tabs and add different addons/plugins by using add on manager similar to one in Mozilla Firefox.
