Three years ago presbyopia arose, and I took a pair of progressive lenses.

Learn to move your head, not your eyes.

How Firefox Will Handle DRM In HTML

Psicopatico Fine for me. (361 comments)

Fine for me.

But relase this stuff as an extension.
An "Official Extension" written directly by Mozilla, properly advertised and recommended and all that, if you wish. But make an extension.

Amarok 2.8 "Return To the Origin" Released

Psicopatico Re:Crappy players (99 comments)

+1 for QMMP.
While it's still a < 1.0 release, it gets the job done (it plays :p ).
Also, there are a fair amount of skins for it, as it accepts skins for Audacity or XMMS.
At the moment I use one which replicates exactly the good old WinAmp 1.0. Hell, it even has the WinAmp name on each window... For the curious, here it is
