iTunes Browser-Based Link Previews Include Song Previews

Back in November, Apple introduced the ability to see what songs were available in the iTunes store through your web browser, but it looks like they've finally added the piece de résistance (or rather, the thing that really makes this useful) - 30-second song previews.

Before you click through on a link that'll open up iTunes, you can hover your cursor over the title of the song in a browser preview to bring up a play button, allowing you to confirm that the song in question is really what you think it is. If it is, you can hit the link to view it in the iTunes store and buy it. If you don't keep iTunes open all the time, but if you want to check whether something's available, it's likely a quicker solution than opening up iTunes just to preview a song.

    You can't really call the 30 second preview feature the piece de résistance when you still can't actually BUY music from it without the itunes bloatware.
