As I dislike launchers myself, I went looking around for alternatives and found SongChick (for more info, see

I was one of the many people begging for Songbird Portable back when it was just a "hatchling". I believe it took 1-2 years before an official portable version was made -- by that time Foobar2000 became my inseparable best mate. Sure Songbird is the new kid on the block and Speed, memory and no itunes support will probably be it's Achilles heal, but it has a lot of potential through add-ons and it's web support.

Additional note: the program appears to freeze when asked to scan directories with more than around 100 gigs of music.

A stable, feature-rich audio player and one of the only open source players here on the site with a beautiful, easy-to-use interface.

Although the program is large in terms of memory and disk footprint, the program is dwarfed by iTunes resource usage and its host of memory-resident programs. The program itself isn't much different than many other players here on the site, but its looking like plugins and add-ons will end up being the real star of this program with radio, lyrics, and even Torrent management.

I hate launchers, sure it meets portable requirements that nothing is left on the machine and doesn't require installation, but you aren't natively launching the app.

songbird itself is based off of the same engine as firefox plus gstreamer firefox alone is a big package and so is gstreamer so it does add up.
