CNET Editors' review

Last.fm is one of the largest and most popular music sites online. Google Chrome is one of the fastest and most flexible browsers available. Seems like a natural match, doesn't it? It is, thanks to Last.fm's free music player extension for Chrome. Last.fm's "scrobbling" feature tracks your listening habits and recommends music you might like. It tracks what you listen to on Internet radio as well as on your portable player via a plug-in and compiles the information into your profile. Last.fm's free Google Chrome extension simply lets you play your tracks directly from Chrome, without having to open Windows Media Player or another player. You can use it with or without scrobbling anything; in fact you can enable or disable scrobbling from the player's interface.

If you're new to Last.fm, we recommend signing up first and then installing the Google Chrome extension, though you can also sign up for Last.fm via the extension. Once we'd signed in to our profile, we browsed to some of Last.fm's recommendations, selected a track, and clicked its play icon. The Last.fm extension displayed a small time counter as soon as the tune started playing. We opened the player's interface, which displayed artist, song title, and the album's name and artwork with the opportunity to buy either the tune or album. The basic play controls, volume slider, and time counter all worked normally, while an expanded lower view displayed the album's contents with the currently playing tune identified by pause and replay buttons. The digital audio quality is as good as the source and your sound card and speakers, naturally.

Last.fm is a great way to sample new music before you buy it--and even buy it directly via Amazon.com--and the scrobbling feature can help you find new stuff you're likely to like. The free Last.fm extension just makes it that much easier to enjoy your music while using Chrome.

    "Excellent Free Suppliant to Pandora"

    October 17, 2013  |   By norton1216

    Version: Last.fm free music player 2.9.692

    Pros

    Provides great jazz and blues recordings that are (for some reason) rarely duplicated by my paid subscription to Pandora.

    Cons

    Minimal advertisement interruptions.

    Summary



    Updated on Oct 17, 2013

    Excellent Free Supplement to Pandora. I don't think this site has a provision to edit typos, etc.
