Wyzo, A Media Lovers Browser

FireTorrentYet another browser based on the Firefox core has emerged! Wyzo bills itself as a browser that focuses on optimizing your online media experience.

Wyzo gives you easy access to all your favourite media sites, downloading media content and informing your friends about your discoveries. The developers claim to be a small group of people building a web browser that lets them download and manage media files from a single application.

While most browsers will let you download media files and, with the help of a few extensions, you can even get most of the embedded stuff as well, Wyzo is aiming to let you download BitTorrent files as well by bundling in an extension called FireTorrent.

FireTorrent is a BitTorrent extension for the Wyzo and Firefox web browsers. The FireTorrent extension strives to offer the most user-friendly BitTorrent experience. The torrents manager is integrated as a seperate tab in the browser's download manager, and torrents can be downloaded from any website with a single click. It includes the very latest technologies and standards to ensure that your download completes quickly and reliably, including advanced features such as STUNT connections, uPnP NAT traversal and uTorrent compatible peer exchange.

Windows and Mac OS X versions of Wyzo are available now and a Linux version is in development. The FireTorrent extension is only available for Windows at the moment but, again, other platforms will be supported soon.
