Pandora is a fantastic Web service that plays music based upon your music preferences, but it has always had one problem, it is not a stand alone application. PandoraSmall shows pandora.com in a very small, cropped and dragable window that can be minimized to the system tray. PandoraSmall runs in a separate window which means that if your browser crashes, the music can continue without you missing a beat. And, if you weren't going to be browsing the Internet, PandoraSmall uses less RAM than a standard Web browser.
What's new in this version: Version 188.8.131.52 may include unspecified updates, enhancements, or bug fixes.

"Your old PC / slow network will run fast with this App!"
Version: PandoraSmall 220.127.116.11
No Internet browser required = No memory or processor drain! In task manager, you will see that it uses about 1/5 of the resources which can be critical especially if you use Pandora at work.
I didn't know about it earlier.
If your computer runs slower when listening to pandora online, you need this app. I used to have this problem at work. I would start up Pandora while multi tasking and my computer would come crashing to a slow grind. The second I closed my browser, the problem would go away (Dell Dimension 2400 Celeron 2.4GHz w/2GB of Ram). To much processing and memory drain with the browser open. The second I downloaded this App, task manager showed I was only using around 15% of the CPU power! What a life saver!
