Feature-heavy, souped-up MP3 player not what you are looking for? Want something light, fast and easily removable? If so, CoolPlayer is the tool for you.

In the world of MP3 players, it often turns out that what you gain in terms of features also weighs you down in terms of speed. Not so with CoolPlayer, a basic but fully functional MP3 player that lets you listen to your music in record time, without requiring complicated configuration or even installation.

CoolPlayer's interface is not the prettiest on the market, but it does work and is very intuitive. It has all the features you would expect on a player, and allows you to create playlists that can be saved and used later. CoolPlayer has more configuration options than you would expect from such a light tool, including MP3, OGG and M3U streaming support.

CoolPlayer's not a fancy tool, but if you are looking for speed and simplicity, it might be the one for you.

    "CoolPlayer, best audio player"

    My best choice of audio player among many that I have installed. Extremely low on resource usage. Great sound. Using it... More.
