Is there a Windows based widget or something I can use to play Pandora without keeping the browser open. Like a system tray icon program or something?

Though a paid app, Pandora One is the official desktop application built with Adobe Air.

Exactly what I was looking for. Thanks. – JohnFx Aug 20 '10 at 14:27
I might want to point out that the audio comparison under the Higher Quality Audio section is a LIE. Free Pandora radio doesn't sound that bad, and the high quality example has some nasty tricks (such as a high-end exciter turned all the way up) that give the illusion that it's much better quality with the paid version. You'll still be able to hear a difference, but not to that extent. – Vortico Aug 21 '10 at 14:03

If you use Mac OS X, you might also consider Musicality ($10), which has Pandora and Last.fm support. I've been using it for several months, and it's been great so far.

If you're looking for something free, OpenPandora works well enough.
