Wyzo: The Firefox-Based, Media-Focused Browser
Article by George Norman

The Firefox-based Wyzo browser supercharges your downloads by using multi-source downloading and comes with a built-in torrent client so you don’t need anything else to download media.

With the Wyzo browser, developer Radical Software put the emphasis on helping you mange and download media from the web as quickly as possible – that is actually the reason why the developer branded Wyzo as a media browser, not a web browser. The following nice features are added to the Firefox platform to help you have a media-focused experience: accelerated downloads, SkipScreen, and BitTorrent integration.

Supercharged Downloads
Waiting a long time for a download to complete is never a fun thing. That is why multi-source downloading has been incorporated into the browser. Whenever possible, Wyzo uses this feature to accelerate web downloads.

SkipScreen Feature
Speaking about nuisances that eat into your time, unnecessary pages on media sharing sites like RapidShare certainly fit the description. Wyzo comes with a SkipScreen feature that lets you skip these unnecessary pages – you get to the media you want faster.

BitTorrent Integration
We all know that using the BitTorrent protocol is an incredibly efficient means of getting media off the web. With Wyzo you can download torrents with the browser, you don’t need a torrent client to be installed on your machine. It can do that because FireTorrent, a BitTorrent extension, is built into the browser.

As mentioned above, Wyzo is based on Mozilla’s Firefox browser. As a big Firefox fan, I found this to be a big pro – it meant that I was already familiar with the interface, hotkeys, and functionality the browser has to offer. As I a familiar with Firefox, I immediately felt at home using Wyzo.
