When the Internet was small and young, file formats were pretty much limited to image types and media file types that the browsers of the time could handle. At the very beginning, text was almost exclusively meant to be presented on the Internet in HTML format, or provided as a file download via FTP protocol. Pictures were JPG or GIF across the board, and sound files were these strangely embedded WAV files and those pathetic electronic MIDI files.
What would you say about an audio player that’s rounds up to a size of an average Chrome extension? What would you say about this MP3 player that is not only tiny in size, but is actually tiny in the space it occupies on a screen’s real estate as well? Well, you can say that good things come in small packages, or you can simply say – CoolPlayer.
When you look around today, you’ll notice that virtually everyone now uses some digital device, whether it be an iPod or other generic MP3-capable device, to listen to their music. This is very different from a decade or two ago, where most people would carry around portable CD players to listen to their music on the go. As the technology for MP3-playback and storage became dirt cheap, more and more people started adopting the new devices.
