"Appearing in February 2006, Songbird is five years younger than
Apple's iTunes, and does not yet match it feature for feature. iPod
support, album artwork, podcast support and stability are
considered beta features and need improving. CD ripping, watching
folders for changes and video support are all still coming.
"However, Songbird's unique features make it a great media
player in the Web 2.0 world. It is a flexible tool that belongs in
the toolkit of any musician who explores new music online. In
particular, the way it works with music-related websites and blogs
greatly interests me. Songbird has completely changed the way I
think about discovering and playing music online."
