Personally I really like this one for his extra features; I added my mp3s and playlists (which are radiostations on my comp) into the catalog.

Oh this is interesting. I didn't know about this one. Any bugs or anything like that? I find that sometimes after I've installed new software onto my system, something always goes wrong.

It does have bugs. Not dramatic ones, but still. First, it displays several icons wrong, both in Xp and Vista (for instance, it fails to display the proper icon when typing a web address or doing a Google search. Second, it doesn't access the bookmarks in Firefox 3.x. It is also a bit less snappy than the previous version was, but that is not a big deal (in case anybody is wondering, I'm typing on a nearly state-of-the-art laptop, so it's not a resources issue). As I said, nothing dramatic, but bugs non the less.

That said, I'd like to thank the developer or developers for creating such a useful piece of software and make it free to download and use. It has revolutionized my experience in front of the computer. Thank you guys!
