New RIA Player Materialized through Song Birds

Posted by Charles | August 27, 2007 .

Aside from Adobe Flash, Flex and AIR, Microsoft Silverlight, Sun JavaFX and AJAX, Firefox is another potential strong RIA player. Especially when Firefox 3 coming out. The reason I believe it’s a strong RIA player is that, with Firefox or Mozilla platform, the line between online (browser) and offline (desktop) will be cleanly removed. Now, here comes a prove, SongBirds.

SongBirds is getting into this crowded Music social network area. It does all other music site does, listening music, share playlist, visualization, etc. SongBirds is developed on top of the Mozilla Foundation‘s platform, which is the foundation of Firefox. That means it connects the web the same way a browser does. Um…it’s actually a browser, well, not exactly. it’s actually a desktop application…but firefox itself is a desktop application too. See, that’s how the RIA player gets you. Of cause, just like firefox, it supports all the OSs, it allows development of all kinds addons, which is most important success factor for Firefox.

I’m not sure about the music business SongBirds is in. But I do believe the way the application got developed and ecosystem got built around are showing some lights of future. Besides, it’s all opensource too.

    One other thing is that an online business administration course is designed for people to be able to efficiently proceed to bachelors degree programs. The Ninety credit education meets the other bachelor college degree requirements and when you earn your associate of arts in BA online, you will get access to up to date technologies in this field. Several reasons why students want to get their associate degree in business is because they may be interested in this area and want to find the general training necessary before jumping right into a bachelor college diploma program. Thx for the tips you actually provide in your blog.
