Grooveshark launches HTML5 webapp for streaming music in barebones beta

Music streaming service Grooveshark just launched an HTML5 player in beta for streaming music to most devices.


Today, music streaming service Grooveshark debuted a new HTML5 webapp in beta for streaming music on some phones without the need for Flash. Apparently it doesn't work on Windows Phone yet, but Grooveshark claims compatibility with iOS, Android 2.3+, BlackBerry Playbook, and the TouchPad.

You are able to search for music, play stations, and listen to Grooveshark's current most popular songs.
