Freeware iTunes plug-in iTunesControl gives us all a chance to improve iTunes' features by adding long-missing features.

The On-Screen Display pop-up can be customized to an amazing extent. Users can choose to have album art displayed, and can choose precisely which information about the currently playing track gets shown. But you can also choose the screen position, the size of the album art, the background color, the font, the font color, the border thickness and color, and more about the aesthetics of the OSD box. Under the Layout tab, you can cut and paste tags to change the display. Note that opting for the Outline mode will override any background color or border you've previously chosen.

You can set up to 30 different hot keys, from the basics to advanced features like track ratings, repeat mode, hide and show iTunes, and more. Users can also set the title information displayed for iTunes itself and startup and shutdown behavior for iTunes and the plug-in. Two useful options tie the plug-ins behavior to iTunes, so that when you start and close the plug-in, iTunes will also open and shut down.

The program is still in beta, but it's compatible with versions of iTunes as old as 4.6. This is a pretty neat plug-in for those of you who find yourselves addicted to iTunes.
