FireAmp: Winamp clone in Firefox

FireAmp is a complete music player for Firefox browser that will be useful to hear music with a mouse click whiles you surfing the net, and of course if there is a difficulty in accessing a player from your desktop?. This Firefox extension is very similar to Winamp and the work was done in java. (Java runtime 1.5 or higher installed on your computer to play) and have Winamp classic 2 skin supports.

FireAmp is still in experimental stage, however its working is not bad and is capable of playing different audio formats such as MP3, wav, OGG Vorbis, AIFF, etc. Once installed (required a free account with Mozilla), you can access the player by clicking on FireAmp icon shown on Menu bar.

It may be necessary to drag the icon to menu bar from View – Toolbar – Customize, if it is not there. I don’t think this player has any significant role to play in Firefox, but we should appreciate the idea behind this interesting project.


  1. Very interesting news indeed!

  2. Looks fine, installed, but I miss the skin selection?
