FoxyTunes 2

For anyone that likes to listen to music while you browse the web with Firefox then I’m sure you are already using FoxyTunes. It is an extension that allows you to control your music player (WinAmp, Windows Media Player, Musicmatch, and many more) without ever having to leave your browser!

Just the other day FoxyTunes released a pretty big upgrade that has the following features:

  • Web searches – find lyrics, artist images, videos, bios and more, while listening to music with FoxyTunes. [see demo movie]
  • FoxyTunes Mini – now you can enjoy your music with FoxyTunes even when you’re not in Firefox. It’s the only music desktop widget with its own tabbed browser! [see demo movie]. Currently, only supported on Windows.
  • Info Box – your music “dashboard”. Shows song info, album art, recent history and more… [see demo movie]
  • Podcasts and Web media – quickly preview any podcast, stream any or all episodes to your player, and, if you like what you hear, subscribe. Find music on the Web pages you visit, and stream it to your media player with a click. [see demo movie]

This is one of the top Firefox extensions with nearly 2 million downloads. The new version seems to be getting some rave reviews from users with many people loving the search feature.
