Yes, but looking promising is about all it does. It doesn't work properly yet. :(

Not too bad. I wasn't that impressed with it as a media player in general from what I saw there. They didn't touch on some features I would like on a media player.

The mp3 search (web) seem acceptable though. And I have to admit, the live web playlist function is very nifty.

yeah, I tried this out a while back when searching for windows media players. It will be really nice when it's working, but I have to use foobar for now.

Amarok owns them all, and there are plans of it being ported to windows ;D

Despise is a harsh word, I just prefer Opera. I'm not even sure what they mean by "built on the Firefox platform", but it does look promising.

If Apple notices it, chances are web support will be integrated into iTunes.

Looks cool, but it's really not something I would use.  I'm perfectly happy with XMMS.
