This free Firefox plug-in gives jazz music lovers something to sing about. Jazz Radio lets you tune in to radio stations worldwide that play songs from the genre.
The customary bar won't wow or disappoint you with its appearance. A few radio controls allow for fairly quick volume control and switches between stations. You'll have fast access to jazz stations in locations from the United States to the Netherlands, so you can listen to fusion, smooth, New Orleans, and big band jazz, to name a few. None of the stations we tested missed a beat.
Its search function primarily uses Google. Quick links to music articles, reviews, and new releases are conveniently placed on menus via the toolbar as are other links to news, sports, and financial updates. You can add other useful buttons to some Microsoft and Windows programs and then determine what will actually appear on your bar. Yahoo, Gmail, Hotmail, and POP3 users can get e-mail notifications.
Like others in this category, Jazz Radio has pop-up blocking and weather forecasting on the bar. Packed with useful features, jazz enthusiasts won't want to pass this up.
