Pithos is a light-weight Pandora internet radio client for Linux. It consumes lesser system resources than when playing Pandora radio via your web browser. Personally, I also like the comfort of keeping audio play separate from web browser, just to avoid unintended closing of Pandora when I just wanted to close internet browsing.
Pithos is being actively developed with several new features included in every release. It lets you control songs playback. You can play, pause, or skip to next song. Switching stations is done simply by selecting from the drop down list. From the Pithos user interface, you can love, ban, or select ‘tired’ of this song. Other important features include cover art, creating stations, and also ability to remember user name and password so that you don’t have to enter it every time.
