Convert your Chrome browser into a Spotify alternative with 'Streamus'

Convert your Chrome browser into a Spotify alternative with 'Streamus' A new Chrome extension, Streamus, will allow you to turn your Chrome browser into a Spotify alternative using YouTube's massive music library.
When added to the browser, the extension allows you to search for a song and then begin playing it, without leaving your current tab.

Crunch put together a nice .GIF of how it works, which you can see after the jump.

Type "Streamus" into the URL bar, hit "Tab" and then search for the song/artist and you will see a dropdown with plenty of YouTube results. Click on it and the Streamus will begin playing the song in the background of what you are currently doing.

While the extension has little functionality besides that (so far), there is the ability to create playlists, which can be saved for later and the ability to shuffle new songs based on previously played artists, like the radio function of Pandora or Spotify.

Try it here: Streamus

Awesome plugin! This is one of those things I didn't know I wanted five minutes ago, but now I can't live without it...

I'd rather just go to Grooveshark and stream.

Having used this extension for a couple of days, have to say it is great and just so simple to find the occasional song you may want to hear.
