In iTunes 11, we squeezed more features into an even smaller MiniPlayer than ever before. Now not only can you play your music without taking up much space on your screen, but you can also see, add to, subtract from, and change the playlist order whenever you want, all without going back to the main window. The MiniPlayer displays the graphic for whatever is playing plus access to the controls for seeing and adding to the playlist (and yes you can drag items within the playlist to rearrange them). And if you hover over it you'll discover the standard back-pause-forward audio controls plus an AirPlay icon. Explore. Enjoy. It's like having a little DJ hanging around unobtrusively, always ready to respond to your mood.
