Beats Music is due for a big redesign come WWDC. Hopefully that means a native Mac app is on the way, as well as a web player that doesn’t use Flash.

While we’re waiting for Apple to trash its use of the web plugin Steve Jobs loathed, Chris Aljoudi has solved the problem with a brilliant Safari extension that brings Beats Music playback to your browser using HTML5.

It’s called BeatsMe. It’s very minimal, and best of all it’s free.

“You even get better battery life in comparison as a free bonus,” Chris told Apple fans on reddit. “Hopefully it helps anyone else who’s been wanting to ditch Flash.”

A free copy of  BeatsMe can be downloaded  here. Once installed, go to listen.beatsmusic.com and it “just works,” as Jobs would say.
