Netscape Manages to Piss Me Off Again
The player itself looks as advertised. I run it, select my station, and start listening. All fine so far. Then I decide to get some real work done and try to minimize it. This is what it did! Took up the bottom chunk of my screen like a big ugly fucking banner ad. You had to hit minimize again to get the thing to go into the task bar properly.
I can see the value of having the always on top, banner ad thing, if you want to have your music showing all the time, be able to change channels quickly, if there was a cool EQ or something, but make it an option that the user can choose knowing what they are choosing, don’t impose some new operation in place of what they expect, or else they are going to get pissed off at you!
I used to be a netscape zelot, but since they got bought up, like many people, I’m not overly impressed with the AOL treatment that netscape is getting.
