Add some cool extensions to Banshee

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); I had recently been on a roll with the Ubuntu One Music Store. In that series I spoke a lot of Rhythbox, because that was the “default” player supporting Ubuntu One Music Store. But Rhythmbox isn’t the only player in town. Oh no. In fact, another outstanding player gets plenty o’ lovin’ from the Ubuntu community. That player? Banshee. Along with Rhythmbox, Banshee plays along well with the GNOME desktop....

An Early Look at Chrome’s Extensions System [Extensions]

It’s not officially released, but a gallery-like site for extensions has made itself known into the latest development builds of Google Chrome for Windows and Linux.
