Yahoo! Launches FoxyTunes 2.0 For Internet Explorer

Posted Mar 15, 2008

It’s been about a month since Yahoo! acquired FoxyTunes.  Usually it takes time to integrate companies after an acquisition, but it seems like FoxyTunes isn’t wasting any time to push new features.  The company has officially released FoxyTunes 2.0 according to the Yahoo! Blog.

In addition to FoxyTunes features to control music through a toolbar on a web browser, FoxyTunes 2.0 for Internet Explorer now has a Mini Desktop widget that can connect to it.

The skinny on FoxyTunes is that they also have custom skins.  There are 11 total available as of right now.  Since FoxyTunes has new skin colors, what better way to show that they’re univesal than by supporting different languages.

FoxyTunes 2.0 for Internet Explorer also has 30 new languages connected.  This includes Bulgarian, Czech, German, and Spanish.  FoxyTunes created a Firefox 3 compatible plugin for Mozilla’s upcoming release.

And lastly, FoxyTunes now supports timer and alarm clock features in Internet Explorer.  Beforehand, this feature was only possible using the FoxyTunes plugin for Firefox.  FoxyTunes users can set any of the songs on their hard drive as the song that they want to wake up to as long as the browser and computer is on while going to bed.

FoxyTunes is one of my most favorite plugins for IE and Firefox.  I use it everyday.  I definitely recommend getting it.
