Browser Extension of the Week: exfm

Maximum PC Staff

There’s nothing better than discovering music that moves you. Too bad we have to wade through so much crud to find that one aural gem that’ll keep us bopping all week long. For those of us sick of  what mainstream joints Amazon or the iTunes Store have to offer, you’re going to want to know about the awesomeness that is exfm , our Browser Extension of the Week.

exfm is a browser extension for Chrome that indexes every MP3 file you stumble across during your online adventures. Running in the background as you browse the web, the extension quietly builds a library of music for you to listen to.

Sounds cool, no? Well, it gets cooler.

To keep that library of yours growing, exfm automatically checks back with pages you’ve visited previously, adding any new music it finds. If that’s not enough for you, the extension also boasts integration with Tumblr, Facebook, Last.fm and Twitter so that you can source music from your friends and the other folks you follow, making for an awesome playlist full of some of the finest free music in the world today.

Throw some slick pre-loaded keyboard shortcuts into the mix, as well as an optional desktop notification every time a new song starts and you’ve got yourself a musical tour de force that set to go toe-to-toe with just about any other music streaming application on the market today.

Be sure to check back with us again next Thursday for another awesome Browser Extension of the Week.
