Roger BystrÃ¸m has written an Ajax frontend to MPD, Pitchfork:
The benefit of Pitchfork is that once it’s installed it’s available on any machine with a modern web-browser. With icecast you’ll also be able to remotely listen to your music through pitchfork. To get a feel of pitchfork, have a look at the video and screenshots. Pitchfork has been written from the bottom without any external ajax libraries which makes it possible to make optimizations which otherwise would be impossible. This means that it isn’t that far from a normal application you would run on your computer with regards to speed and usability. Also because it’s a web-application it allows us to do some nifty things like showing album cover in the middle of the screen and linking to the lyrics site.
