Songbird: The Firefox of Music Players?

Songbird is a media player/browser built on the Mozilla platform that handles audio and video. It has more than a passing resemblance to the iTunes user interface, but it has a lot more features. You can use it to catalog all the music on your computer, and also search music and video blogs for more.

There are pre-installed links to blogs that you browse through for music files, which show up as links at the bottom of the screen. You can drag-and-drop them into your library or listen to them directly in Songbird. There's also a search box that you can use to look for more sources of music and video.

Songbird really is like Firefox for music. It's serves a very specific function, finding and storing media, much like Flock is designed with social networking in mind. I can see myself firing it up alongside a more general purpose browser like Mozilla since it does a good job of browsing for media and is a serviceable media player.
