1.0 crashes every time on strartup for me. Haven't even been able to see the UI.

version 1.0.0 is mostly awesome.

@ epollux: I'm not a songbird-user myself but maybe you'd like to look into this:

maybe this will answer your question ;)

It is a pale copy of iTunes? where is the originality?

A useful variant especially for playing AAC+ streams. Combines Mozilla and VLC so with good plugin options.Worth having if you listening to AAC+ streams.

I've been following this app for the past 6 months, downloading nightly builds, etc, and it's still very buggy (UI bugs mostly). It's a shame because the concept is great (having context to discover new music, etc).

For those who just want to grab the MP3s, go with Peel.

Its nice for my Linux Box, but Im too happy with iTunes for my Mac.

I agree with the previous post.
This is too heavy, too slow and still very buggy.
I have watched the screencast in the developer's website and I really liked what I saw. But there's still a long way...
This is a promising application, but its development is just too slow. How long until a fully functional version? (And lighter too...)
Meanwhile, for MP3 blogs, I prefer Peel:

Very promising, but slow as hell. It managed to get both my CPUs running at 100%, and I was not doing much, just browsing emusic.com from its internal browser.

One of those apps that I would "love to love" but..still got a long way to go

Still early, but a useful download none the less. Very interested in seeing what this becomes by the time it reaches 1.0. The user interface would be great if I used windows, but by Mac standards it is extremely ugly. Built by Mozilla, so I expect OS X clone skins (feathers... wtf?) to be available soon enough. Currently Uno doesn't cover up this black eye app.
