Windows Media Player is the multimedia software developed by Microsoft to provide users with the ability to view multimedia content, both from the Internet and from their hard drive. This program allows you to view MPEG and various other types of video content, as well as audio clips.
- New plug-in support added for Internet Explorer, Netscape and Safari enables playback of Windows Media files right from the browser

I wasn't expecting much but I have to say this program rocks. It's fast, simple, and tons of options. More importantly I can now go to web sites that only use Microsoft formats. So far stable.

You guys are way off base. Windows Media Player 9 series codecs are top notch and a quantum improvement over the earlier WMP codecs. There are numerous web sites providing 9 series content that Mac users have not been able to access. Microsoft has worked their butts off for over a year to create a first rate WMP9 for Mac that even supports Safari and all you can do is berate it. I can't believe you have tried it out and I wonder if you have ever viewed or listened to media encoded in WMA9 and WMV9. Microsoft has had a Windows Media Player version for the Mac for a number of years now. The new player is certainly not a response to iTunes. It's merely an upgrade to support the latest version of the WM codec.
