If you love music and listen to it online you must be familiar with Last.fm – which is world’s largest online music catalogue and popular Internet radio site for streaming music. Wouldn’t it be great if you could play songs right from your browser without opening any media player or a music website?
Since Google Chrome opened support for Extensions some amazing extensions have been created. A Google Chrome extension called Last.fm Free Music Player helps you play music from Last.fm directly. It’s not only easy to use but also very convenient. Let’s see how it works and look at some of its features and settings.
