Google: site:esnips.com mp3|ogg|wma Gorillaz
Since eSnips uses an embedded music player to play music, Firefox comes in quite handy in locating the mp3 file once you get to the page. Once you have opened the page that contains the desired music file, follow these steps:
1. Go to Firefox’s menu bar, click Tools and select Page Info.
2. When the Page Info window appears, select the Media tab.
3. Scroll down the list until you find an address that starts with /nsdoc/. This is the address to the music file. Right-click the address and select Copy.
4. Open a new tab in Firefox. In the address bar, type http://www.esnips.com, then paste the copied address in after it.
5. When the file download window appears, select the Save to Disk radio button and click OK.
