    I voted for Amarok, because that's what I currently use. It works reasonably well with KDE.

    I can't really say it is a favorite, because I haven't tried very hard to test the others.

    And sure, Amarok is not exactly perfect.

    It's rare that I'm listen on music now on days. Was using amarok for some years. Then it was Spotify for a couple of years before they change they payment model. Now You tube if music(and that is rare). VLC when listening on audio books and downloaded National radio pod cast.

    Most of the time I use Amarok but I'm starting to like Cantata (mpd client).
    I only set up mpd so I could try it and I was really impressed.

    So I voted both.

    I'm usually listening to Pandora online radio.

    Otherwise I use whatever is the default player already installed.

    A surprising service I have used is (please don't kill me ) http://music.xbox.com

    What makes it interesting is that you are able to look through their pretty large library and add any albums or songs to your collection and/or playlists and play them.

    I haven't found any way to download or upload music to it, so I think it is locked down and limited to their library. I am not impressed with their radio feature either. I prefer Pandora's but that could also be because I've used it for years longer and have it tuned to my various tastes.

    So for collecting albums to listen through a browser without any out-of-pocket costs, it isn't all that bad. I've pulled up some of the older albums just for fun.

    When I listen to Pandora, I much prefer using Pithos over any web browser. It seems a lot lighter, I don't have to worry about accidentally closing it when I close my batch of browsers, and it actually gives me a preview of what the next few songs are (which the browser version doesn't).
