I've been having a lot of trouble with Rhapsody ever since installing IE 7.  It got significantly better after the official release of IE 7, but I was still having the Rhapsody client crash 5-6 times a day, which is very frustrating.  Frustrating enough that I was considering just giving it up. 

The redemption came in the form of their new online version of the player, which runs hosted inside a browser.  It's less fully featured than the offline client, but it's been totally stable, runs well inside Firefox 2.0, and generally hasn't given me any trouble at all.  For now, I'm willing to forego the extra features for a player which really works.  It's even supposed to work in Linux, which means I might finally upgrade my kitchen PC from W2K to Ubuntu.  We can only hope.

You can run the online player by going to http://www.rhapsody.com.  I've had a lot of trouble navigating Rhapsody related stuff, since it's spread across www.rhapsody.com, www.listen.com, and various bits and pieces of www.real.com.  None of them seem to have the same information or links, so it can be hard to find what you are looking for.  I'm willing to accept this as the price I pay for reasonably prices access to tons of music.
