Why was Foobar Controls created?

I am a long time Foobar2000 user and wanted a quick, no-nonsense way to control it from within Firefox.

If you think this add-on is useful, please donate the price of a coffee / beer to say thanks! I really appreciate all donations as I do all of this work in my spare time.

What's next for Foobar Controls

I'd like to make the default icons look better. I get requests for displaying the current song in a tooltip, I might be able to do this, it depends on what the vanilla installation of Foobar gives me to work with, I'm not considering requiring a Foobar plugin just for that.
