BeardedSpice for Mac

Editors' Review

by   / April 08, 2014

With BeardedSpice for Mac you can assign physical keys on your Mac to control Web-based media players. Acting as a global hot key tool, it gets rid of the need to go to a particular browser tab or window to control an online media player.

Pros

Global hot keys for browser-based media players: With BeardedSpice for Mac you can play, pause, stop, or skip tracks in Web-based media players without the need to make your browser windows or tabs active. It's all about setting up physical shortcut keys. Once you've configured everything, you don't have to click on the app's menu bar shortcut again.

Lightweight: Small in size, this light app requires very minimal system resources, running in the background along with your Web browser.

Cons

Only ten sites supported: At the moment, only YouTube, Google Music, Pandora, Last.fm, SoundCloud, Spotify, BandCamp, HypeMachine, GrooveShark, and Rdio are supported.

Only works with Mac OS X 10.7 or higher: It would have been great if it ran on older Mac OS versions, as well.

Bottom Line

BeardedSpice for Mac proves an ideal little app if you love listening to music through Web-based media players. This snappy application works as intended and makes it easy for you to control online music or video players embedded in popular Web sites. Once installed, it integrates and becomes coextensively functional with your Web browser.
