Wyzo Web Browser is a Downloader’s Dream

Windows/Mac/Linux: Built from the Firefox core, free web browser Wyzo integrates BitTorrent capabilities, download acceleration, and much more—though you can get many of Wyzo’s best features in Firefox if you’re not up for the switch.

Since we can’t help but assume that most readers’ reaction to Wyzo would be something along the lines of “You can already do that in Firefox,” I’ll run down some of the best features Wyzo offers and offer the Firefox counterpart (though in most cases the “counterpart” is actually the same extension that comes pre-bundled with Wyzo).

  • BitTorrent Integration: Wyzo integrates BitTorrent downloads directly in the browser—and at speeds comparable to many desktop BitTorrent apps. Want the same in Firefox? Grab the FireTorrent extension.
  • Download Acceleration: Wyzo supercharges your downloads (claiming speed boosts up to 10x faster) with multi-source downloads. Want the same in Firefox? Check out the FireDownload extension or the beloved DownThemAll.
  • Cooliris Previews: This couldn’t be more straightforward. Wyzo comes with the Cooliris extension installed by default, integrating beautiful graphics and cinematic navigation to your browser. Install it in Firefox and you’ve got the same.

We’re not trying to say that there’s no reason someone might want to use Wyzo, but if you’re already entrenched in Firefox love and don’t really feel like switching horses to get some of Wyzo’s cooler features, you can just grab them à la carte with the right extensions. Wyzo is a free download for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux.
