Listen to the radio with this Internet Explorer plug-in
- Allows easy access to radio stations worldwide
- Integrates well with IE
- Wide selection of channels
- Many channels are very obscure
Internet Radio is a nifty little add-on for Internet Explorer 6 or 7 that enables you to listen to thousands of radio stations from around the world while using your browser. The advantage of this is that you can listen to your favourite radio stations without having to open multiple browsers or search for Radio channels.
Once you download the software, the on screen instructions will guide you through the installation process. A radio icon will then be displayed on your Internet Explorer browser which you can activate by clicking on it. The 'Internet Radio' will automatically start and remain at the top of the browser screen. Simply select the country and channel you want and you can then customise the colors and interface. It has to be said that some of the channels are pretty obscure but there's plenty of choice.
On the right-hand side of the interface, there's a "Hide / Show" button which can be used to toggle the visibility of the player. If you're a radio junkie, this is a great plug-in although many of the channels are so bad, you won't be tuning in regularly!
