I don't think we have any control over that. It's all webkit.

So, there are any number of things that interested people could add. Some ideas:
- more data sources and types of information to display (such as
similar artists)
- a tab with links to various sites (wikipedia, discogs, musicbrainz,

- artist/album/lyrics tabs in song info windows (at which point the
context plugin can eat the lyrics plugin)
- personal play history/rating statistics
