Songbird - The finest music player ever

Filed under
Software
Moz/FF

Bombastic titles tend to draw the eye, but trust me, this is more than just a firecracker. Discovering new applications is fun - discovering great new applications is sublime. For people with old, acquired taste, finding new thrills is not easy. But every now and then, you stumble upon a remarkable piece of engineering, which simply blows you away.

Songbird is one such piece. I should not have been surprised; Mozilla people, the fathers and mothers of the famous Firefox, had a big say in its conception; and they know their business when it comes to software. But this time they really did it. The promise that Songbird is going to become the Firefox of music is not an empty one.

Songbird, a lesson in excellence

Ever wondered what it would be like to take a great browser like Firefox and turn in into a music center? Well, you get Songbird. A simple, pleasant, no-nonsense media player, with tabbed interface, auto-update, extensible with addons, beautiful, smart, and extremely well arranged, ergonomically and esthetically.
