The developers of Tomahawk bill their application as a music player that fundamentally changes the way music is consumed and shared. This application hooks you up with your friends — connect with your Jabber /Google Talk / Twitter friends and share collections and playlists.

Tomahawk makes use of 'resolvers' - small scripts that let users use a variety of services, such as hooking up your Google / Jabber account so that you can play music from other people's libraries. This application is written in Qt.
