The battle between Grooveshark and Google rumbles on. As we reported yesterday, the two companies are at loggerheads over the Grooveshark Downloader, a Google Chrome extension that makes it possible to download high quality versions of songs from Grooveshark’s music streaming service for free. Grooveshark claims it has asked Google to take down the app from the Chrome store but Google says it has received no formal removal requests for the extension in question. After Evolver.fm reported on the battle on Monday, the offending app disappeared from the Chrome store overnight – exactly how and why is not clear – only to appear again from a supposedly new developer. The new app not only allows users to download songs from Grooveshark, it also blocks Grooveshark’s own ads, replacing them with new ones that users can pay to remove.
