One wonderful online music streaming website is Grooveshark. Visitors can quickly create an account (although an account is not necessary to start streaming music), then go on and create their playlist. Playlists are played within the built-in player of Grooveshark.

My default web browser is Google Chrome and while using Grooveshark on it, I came across 3 wonderful Chrome extensions that enhanced my overall experience on Grooveshark. For the benefit of all my Chrome using readers (who are also Grooveshark fans), I am going to share these wonderful extension. Read about and install each one; they all serve an important purpose.

1. Ads-Free Grooveshark

Grooveshark offers paid and free plans to its users. Free accountholders are shown ads in their Grooveshark interface – something which is quite distracting and bothersome to some users. This Chrome extension does exactly what its name suggests: it removes those ads. What I liked most about Ads-free Grooveshark that there were no options to set up; the ads simply disappeared once I started installed the extension.

2. ChromeShark

ChromeShark is another Chrome extension that neatly complements the Grooveshark experience in Chrome. It places an icon in our address bar which, when clicked, shows us very basic audio player controls. These controls include previous song, play/pause, next song, and stop.

3. keySharky

While we have the Grooveshark’s player open, we can use keyboard shortcuts which let us control the player like any other audio player. These hotkey shortcuts are introduced by keySharky. The extension lets us change the default hotkey combinations in its options.

Using all these 3 extensions on your Chrome will surely enhance your Grooveshark experience.

I hate to be “that guy” but grooveshark is a pretty darn good service and denying them of the right to show an ad on their own service is kind of a kick to the nuts. Give them 3 bucks.. is it really that much? really? You get ad-free + desktop app + mobile app when you pay.

@That Guy

AMEN. But even $.10 / YEAR would be too much for unlimited music experience for 99.9% of the users. Sick world :(

Thoose extensions are weak compared to ours. Groovebar should be number 1 on the list!!

Grooveshark is an excellent site for music streaming, but they got issues with their bandwidth where sometimes you have to wait awhile to listen to what you want.
