Mozilla has released an Open Source Music Player called SongBird. It is a customizable music player that’s still under active development. Mozilla is still playing safe by saying the music player is still needed to be implemented with all the ideas they have, but still the current list of features are impressive enough to try out.

  1. Isn’t Songbird made by POTI (Pioneers of the Inevitable) Inc. not Mozilla. It’s a Xulrunner app like Firefox, so it’s built on a Mozilla platform I suppose. And it’s been out for years, 2006 or 2007. I think 1.0 came out when this article was published. It’s now 1.4.3

  2. During time the sound quality changes to poor. Makes listening unbearable. This has been a problem for ages. Before that I really loved Songbird. Might be due to W7 updates.
