,----[ Quote ]
| In the end I can say it is one of the best looking Media players to
| look to in coming future expect Songbird to rise further and become
| popular in coming days as songbird reaches its final release.

Mozilla + iTunes + Rhapsody = Songbird *

,----[ Quote ]
| Lord calls Songbird a "mashup between a Web browser and a media player,
| creating a new class of app I call a Web player." Songbird will support all
| open file formats but it will also support codecs (define) and Digital Rights
| Management (DRM) in Windows media, VLC and Quicktime. That means it can play
| the iTunes AAC file format, XviD, Ogg Vorbis and WMV files. * *

| Firefox is not only a fine web browser, but the code it's based on
| is a standardized open-source framework that other applications can
| use take as a basis, using XUL--eXtensible user-interface language
| (pronounced ZOOL). XUL apps work across platforms and can either
| be internet-connected or standalone.
| Today we'll take a look at one of the most appealing XUL
| apps--Songbird, from Pioneers of the Inevitable, Inc, which
| claims folks who've previously worked on Winamp and Yahoo!
| Music Engine.

Songbird aims to be the Firefox of media players

,----[ Quote ]
| I installed the developer preview and, although obviously not complete,
| it's a sharp tool. I'd compare it to Amarok, a popular player on the
| KDE/Linux platform but, that also misses out on much of the deeper
| exploring and interacting features that are in and planned for Songbird.
| At the least, Songbird is a project on which to keep a keen eye.
