Like many other WinAMP lovers, I never really switched to version 3. Although I did give it a try back then, I was very dissapointed by the sluggish program it had turned into, the cool skins did little for me, I wanted performance. You may have heard of the WinAMP 5 project that was started just after 3.0 release, supposedly combining strengths from both releases, the guys over at NTFS got a copy of an early Alpha on their hands which is available for download here (we just know how you enjoy running buggy software ). And speaking of beta downloads... Cerulean Studios, developers of Trillian, recently made available a new Beta version of the IM program for registered users only however. Opera browser 7.20 Beta 7 is now also available for download.
