Winamp disappeared into obscurity, died, then came back to life. But with such a turbulent history, it pays to make sure that the iconic piece of software lives on. Good job a working version of it's been immortalized in HMTL5, then.

Yup. Put together by Jordan Eldredge in HTML5 and Javascript, this is a working reimplementation of Winamp 2.9. At the moment it's a work in progress—you can only choose an MP3 hosted somewhere online to play, so you won't be putting together playlists—but its very existence is pretty impressive. You should go try it. It's fun. [Jordan Eldredge]
