Editorial Songbird is a new open-source music player that has this week landed at 1.0. Songbird is described as a "web player"- a music player for this modern, connected era. It blends the web-rendering core of Firefox (Gecko), with the media capabilities of GStreamer- a cross-platform, open-source media playback engine.

Yes, that's exactly what I'm saying. Banshee has an ill thought out interface that attempts to do far too much in a single, untabbed window, and too much overall (video? statistics? blech!) Amarok, iTunes, Rhythmbox... I've never understood how anyone can stand these huge windows dedicated to such a simple task as playing music.

Sonata shares a passing resemblance with Muine, but the functionality is far different because Muine forces you to open new windows for a lot of basic tasks which Sonata does not.
