If Grooveshark is your number one destination for music all day, read on. We’ve got five tips you can use to make the Grooveshark experience better.
1. Put GrooveShark On Your Desktop
Go here and get the Adobe AIR based GrooveShark app. Install it and you can then launch GrooveShark by clicking on a desktop icon. You don’t have to fiddle with browser tabs anymore. It’s almost like a desktop music player. Download it here.
2. Remove The Annoying Ads
If the ads on the sidebar on Grooveshark annoy you and make the Grooveshark experience less enchanting, it’s time you install this extension for Google Chrome. Advertisements won’t show up the next time you visit Grooveshark.com. If you’re using Firefox, install this Userscript instead.
3. Control Grooveshark Using Keyboard Shortcuts
If you live by GrooveShark all day, you can install keySharky that helps you add any custom keyboard shortcut to play, pause, stop, go to previous/next song on GrooveShark. keySharky’s Firefox counterpart is here.
4. Quickly share songs from Chrome Toolbar
If you like sharing music with your friends, you should check out TinySong’s Chrome addon. You can click on the addon’s icon in the Chrome toolbar to type a song, get a link and share it on Twitter or other social networks. The song will play on Grooveshark.
5. Forget switching tabs to control Grooveshark Player
You’ll often have to switch tabs to control the music being played on GrooveShark.com. sharkZapper for Google Chrome adds a toolbar icon with playback controls â€“ you can pretty much do anything on GrooveShark from the Chrome toolbar without leaving your browser tab â€“ play, pause, go to next/previous song, favourite and a lot more.
If you’re still using Firefox, try GrooveShark Remote Control.
6. Show Lyrics for Songs
This addon for Google Chrome fetches lyrics for the currently playing song from LyricWiki.org and displays them right on the GrooveShark page. You have to hit the â€˜Ly’ button on top and the lyrics will show up. This, along with, with the Ads-free GrooveShark extension mentioned above, make a good combo.
