FoxyTunes Acquired

And No, It Was Not By Google!

It was announced earlier today FoxyTunes, the very popular media player toolbar/extension for Firefox & Thunderbird and music service has been acquired by Yahoo! Music.

From the FoxyTunes Blog:

 “We’ve been talking to the Yahoo! Music team about deepening our cooperation, and we quickly discovered that not only do they understand and appreciate what we’ve done with FoxyTunes, but they also share our vision of Universality and Openness”

Not really too sure what this is going to mean for future development of the extension.  Further seems kinda odd that Yahoo! would acquire a Firefox extension.
