    Hey everyone,
    Anyone know if there is a way to browse in safari while listening to an online mp3 file? Everytime i listen to an online audio such as bbc podcasts, i'm unable to go back to other windows in safari and browse the web at the same time unless i press the "done" key, which simply stops the audio. Let me know if there is a way!

    Instead of going back, you could just open a new browser window. That is that little button on the bottom left corner of your Safari Browser screen.

    Yea, but the problem is there is no new window button while an online mp3 is playing. Instead, the whole screen turns into QuickTime player, with play/pause and volume buttons.

    Nah, I don't think there is a way mate. When it goes into the QuickTime thing its like it takes away all of the iPod features. You can't even double click the home button for the music controls to appear.
