    is it possible to use two browsers at once. preferably use the stock browser to play internet radio with yourmuze and go back to the home screen to do something else like use another browser. Everytime I hit the home button to go to the home screen it kills the music but if I load a page in the home browser and exit out it'll have finished loading the page when I go back to it ? Thought Droid was known for being able to do many things at once ? maybe there's a way to keep the net going for the internet music I'm missing ?

    It is going to depend upon the app you are streaming with. When I open an MP3 stream I use STREAMITALL. So the browser is removed from the equation. And I can open another browser. Why not try your way and see what happens?

    I tried Pandora and it was not a good solution. Some of the players will only work with a fixed length stream and will not play a true stream.

    Interesting, I use it on my Macbook and have been using with my INC since (the 29th April) so not too long but no issues at all for me listening to hours of music/album artwork and artist info displayed.

    I don't remember if Pandora was the one that gave me problems or not. That was why I mentioned SOME instead of Pandora. Try this link and see if it works for you. Old Time Radio I know a lot of the music streams send the file length as part of the stream so it is not an issue. This site does not.

    All very good suggestions

    I use YourMuze its a website where you can search for internet.radio (streaming stations) and ad.them to your personal list.then.go to m.yourmuze.com and play them through you stock browser on any phone .And I have a big list of stations already but when I hit the homescreen button it kicks me out of the stream and stops the music. hmm I've been tryin some other stuff but haven't got it yet will report back if I figure out a way. Thanx all

    Why wouldn't you try it yourself instead of asking? Did you try opening a new tab in the same browser?

    I use cherryRplayer and surf the net @ the same time. Maybe it's not a feature in the app you are using?

    I recommended yourmuze just a few days ago in a thread, did you hear about it from me?

    Either way, I've been using moodio.fm (now yourmuze.fm) for years on my BB and now on my droid, adn unfortunetaly the answer is NO.

    With yourmuze, as soon as you do anything else, the music stops. I kid you not, the browser must be displayed on your screen since it plays through the browser, believe me, I've tried everything you cna't multitask with yourmuze.

    Actually, the answer is Cherry Rplayer. I'm doing it right now. Download Cherry Rplayer, go to m.youmuze.fm and click on your station it should automatically load Cherry and start playing. Sometimes you might have to hit the station more than once. I had to do it like 4 times before it started to play, but it's working now.

    I've been looking to get this one particular station to stream over my phone for nearly a year. Finally! I hope it continues to work.

    Well, so much for this.

    About 3 weeks or so after I posted the above. Cherry Rplayer stopped working for this.
    So I went to DroidLive Lite, which has been working perfectly...until today when I updated to Froyo.
    Now I can't stream anything from yourmuze. DroidLive says that it's a known issue with Froyo and they're working on getting around it. How can Froyo send out the OS with this issue?

    I use cherry rplayer with feeds from The Mobile Stream Center USA - Listen to United States Radio Stations on your Pocket PC, Palm, iPhone, iPod touch, Smartphone, or other PDA or mobile device via Wi-Fi, GPRS, EDGE or 3G

    As far as your original question, I think it's a good idea. On a PC you can, say, run a youtube video in the browser and then switch to another tab or another program and still hear the video. I don't think this is possible in any current android browser (i could be very wrong--haven't tried it). I hope that browser developers can make this kind of functionality a reality.

    By the way, my favorite browser at the moment is dolphin HD.
