Last.fm is one of the most popular music portals on the Internet. It offers a wealth of information about bands, musicians, concerts and everything else music related. A popular feature is the ability to play songs directly on the website. Individual songs can be played directly in the web browser. Some songs are offered as 30 second snippets while others are available fully.
A playlist option however is not available on those pages, only the ability to play songs of the artist in the Radio on site.
The Google Chrome extension Last.fm Free Music Player improves the listening experience on Last.fm. It will automatically intercept clicks on play buttons on Last.fm. The page is scanned for music and all songs found on it are displayed in the player’s interface.
This works on all pages containing a play button to play songs.

The music player acts as a playlist on Last.fm. The music plays in the background and continues to play even if the Last.fm page is closed in the web browser.
The player offers basic controls that include controlling the volume, pausing playback, shuffling or repeating songs and scrobbling.
All songs that are played in the music player seem to be full length songs. We tested some songs in Internet Explorer and Chrome without the extension installed and noticed that they were cut after 30 seconds. The same songs were offered as full length songs in the Last.fm Free Music Player.
That alone should be reason enough to use the music player when playing songs on Last.fm.
The ability to play full length songs, the playlist feature and the fact that music can be played in the background make Last.fm Free Music Player an ideal player for Last.fm users. Google Chrome users can download the extension directly from the Google Chrome Extensions gallery.
