I've added a new feature at Magnatune, to give you URLs that link directly to a song or a specific tab.
This makes it much easier to blog about a specific song, since people who click on that link will now hear the song you linked to, and not the first song (which is what it used to do).
So...every time a song plays, the URL on the page will change to have a song= on the end of it, like so:
If you go to this URL, song number 3 will play.
The same thing is now also true for tabs on the artist page.
If you click the URL for a download tab, the url will have "download" on the end:
and going to this url will automatically load the download page.
This new feature doesn't work for IE6, but worked for every other browser I tested.
In other news, those of you using Internet Explorer 11 have been having problems playing music at Magnatune. This should be fixed now. The problem was caused by IE11 identifying itself as Firefox, which can play OGG audio files. IE11 definitely cannot play OGG audio files, and that's what caused the problem.
