Songbird, circling over iTunes

ImageShack

 

When you have a mozilla backed project, you can be rest assured that it will rock you like nothing else in the world! So, another round of software wars. After Firefox kicked IE out of the scene, Mozilla hopes to draw first blood with Songbird. Songbird is the first open source application for managing media, the way iTunes does. Perhaps better. Why do like firefox? I like because its extensible, and I can do anything I could ever dream of doing on the web. Well, songbird promises the same. And its meaner and leaner than iTunes! Songbird runs on Windows, Mac OS X and Linux personal computers with few OS-specific tweakages.

“Songbird is a player and a platform. Like Firefox, Songbird is an open source, Open Web project built on the Mozilla platform. Songbird provides a public playground for Web media mash-ups by providing developers with both desktop and Web APIs, developer resources and fostering Open Web media standards, to wit, an Open Media Web.” - from the website.

The plugins made are already the talk of the town, the most popular being the one that lets you synchronize your iPod with Songbird. Well, i really feel sorry for iTunes now. But what can i say about an application that is huge, bulky and slow.

Here are some screen shots of Songbird for you to start drooling. Yeah, it looks awesome and these are not the only skins available!

Sending Scraps to all, the safe way

I’ll keep it really plain and simple. The ones presently people are using are dangerous. They could do anything! Anything. Store your password, lock your account. Possibilities are endless.I was looking for user scripts for greasemonkey to do the same. I got this one. I’ll tell you why its good.

  • Does not append any advertisements at the bottom of the scrap!
  • Is free from any malware (I have checked the code, but i could be wrong!)
  • Provides a nice interface to send scraps.
  • Simple customization is possible.

What you need to do is this:

  1. Download Firefox (Yeah, it will not work with IE)
  2. Download the GreaseMonkey addon (from here)
  3. Check this user script (from here)
  4. Click the button which says install.
  5. Login to your Orkut Account and visit http://orkut.com/scraps.aspx

Yeah, you’re done! Keep rocking.

Your friendly neighborhood whiz kid,

Vinni!
