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.

"The Mac download expands into a 117 MB"

Mac applications generally carry all the static libraries in one single file. There is a different philosophy of setup in Mac: There's no setup of anything. Just drag and run. I don't think it's the best philosophy when it comes down for shared libraries and take advantage of what's already in memory. But Mac does have a resource fork (meaning that it should be much more than 117 totally static).
