Good to see another groundbreaking Spotify "innovation."

I remember Grooveshark getting into the chrome web store almost two years ago.

I definitely don't see Spotify parading around calling this a groundbreaking "innovation." It's convenient for people like me that use Spotify 24/7 and want the choice between web and desktop.

Seriously? Spotify and Grooveshark aren't even playing in the same league. Grooveshark's audio quality and music library are a wreck compared to Spotify's clean, consistent and reliable one. This is like people who decried the iPod and foresaw its doom because "Archos had the same thing available for 2 years." Not comparable.

I don't remember anyone calling it innovation. How about a nice feature addition to a service? After all, Spotify also has many other "innovations" Grooveshark doesn't: a clear legality, accurate track and artist catalogues, and paying all of their artists (even if it isn't much, it is certainly more than Grooveshark).
