    Somehow, I always feel a little sad when part of our web heritage disappears.

    Winamp was my first alternative to WMP and was indeed quite good back then. But it kept updating to an annoying extent and worse, each update was making it a little slower and heavier on resources. In the end, it wouldn't even play demanding videos on my old computer and I switched to slimmer and nimbler alternatives.

    I suspect my experience was not unique and has something to do with its loss of popularity. They just couldn't leave a good, well functioning software alone. And unfortunately this seems to be the way with a lot of other apps too.
