Editors' Review

If you love music but hate jumping from Firefox to music player and back whenever you want to adjust your tunes, FoxyTunes is the plug-in for you.

FoxyTunes gives you control of your favorite music player from within Firefox, so there's no more switching windows to skip that Barry Manilow ditty you forgot to delete. The interface is easy to use and is highly customizable. When opened, it shows a navigation array with buttons for Play, Pause, Mute, Next Track, Last Track, Volume, and the useful Show Player, which unhides your music player. There's also a Hide Player button, as well as a music Search tool, keyboard shortcuts, skins, and a mini player that places the app controls on your desktop.

Supported players include iTunes, Winamp, RealPlayer, XMPlay and Last.fm, as well as nearly two dozen others and a "custom player" option. The lyric and album art searches have been expanded with FoxyTunes' new music portal, which provides feeds from Google, YouTube, Amazon.com, Last.fm, Wikipedia, and several online radio stations to make music discovery easier.

FoxyTunes' strengths are in the depth of available features plus the level of customization. Weaknesses? Only that you'll wish all Firefox add-ons were this good.

"It's a neat ide BUT..."

August 20, 2007  |  By nocrashonmeplz

 |  Version: FoxyTunes 2.9.2

Pros

Tying a media player into FF, nice idea. The links to see more information is awesome also. I really liked this application.

Cons

I brought up a dialog to upload something to my blog. Since I had used this in conjunction with itunes, it halted iTunes and made it hang. It made FF hang. It also made picasa upset for some strange reason. I'll try again when I have more patience and time to waste... but having to revive and terminate programs more than once causes me to wait on the sidelines for this app a few versions.

"Why Bother?"

June 29, 2007  |  By dswellhauser

 |  Version: FoxyTunes 2.9.2

Pros

Nothing

Cons

This has got to be the most useless extension I've downloaded. I use iTunes and this does not simplify using it in any significant way....and on top of that it is just one more extension that will slow Firefox down. Don't download it.
