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.

Amarok's a decent media player ... but it's a horrible media manager. The "collection" is nothing more than a directory browser. You can't even edit any metadata (id tags, filename, etc) from within it.


Right click->Edit information for X tracks?

Maybe it could have been implented so you could edit that inside the very collection tree, but I don't see how that could have been done without adding clutter to the interface.
More so when, as it is right now, edit information doesn't just mean id tags but also lyrics and labels.
