Grooveshark Lite is a online service created by Grooveshark that offers a music search engine with the ability to playback the music found directly in the browser. The interface is based on Flash and provides simultaneous navigation and uninterrupted playback. Users who do not have an account can enter an artist, album or song title in the search box and Grooveshark Lite will display information in five categories.

The categories are Songs, Artists, Albums, Playlista and Genres. If you enter an artist for instance you will find songs of that artist in the songs category and the albums in albums obviously. If you pick the albums category you can play all songs of a album which is a nice feature.

The music plays perfectly even if you switch tabs or minimize the browser. Registered users can create playlists of their favorite songs and Grooveshark Lite is recommending similar songs if any have been found.

Grooveshark Lite offers a great design and usability with a huge music database that does find many artists and songs. Naturally not all artists and songs can be found but if you are looking for popular artists, charts stuff and even popular artists in a certain genre you will find them at Grooveshark Lite.

The website is connected to Grooveshark, could be some kind of teaser website to make Grooveshark more popular. If that is the case they will definitely succeed.

Update: Grooveshark Lite does not seem to be available anymore. The service redirects to the main Grooveshark website now, with no indication of the service anywhere on the official page. We have removed the link as a consequence, and replaced it with the link pointing to the main Grooveshark webite.

    Hey! Grooveshark is really a great website! Anyway, many other websites are already broadcasting free and legal music-on-demand. My favourite today si the French one:
