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.

You need to understand how Mac apps work. Everything is in the one file. It's not like Windows where one app has parts in Program Files, DLLs in System 32, and then stuff in the Registry, and in other cases yet more in Common Files...


Everything is not in one file! It may look like a file to you but it is a directory, a special one, but a directory none the less.

Semantics. It's still all within one location. Saying "it's a directory" doesn't invalidate my point one iota. (How many iotas are there in a point?)
