If you're of the opinion that the world needs a browser specifically designed for power downloaders, then Wyzo (free) may well be for you. The free browser includes a set of tools that downloaders will welcome including multi-sourced downloads for faster downloads and built-in BitTorrent.

Wyzo is a browser for power downloaders who don't want to muck about with an extra BitTorrent program.

The browser will be particularly useful for those who may have heard of BitTorrent, but don't want to go through the fuss and bother of downloading a BitTorrent client and learning how to use it. You can search for torrents from within the browser, then use the browser to download and handle torrents as well.

There are a lot of other extras in Wyzo as well. Notable ones includes the ability to navigate the Web using mouse gestures, and the integration of CoolIris, which is essentially a browser add-in for searching for and viewing video content.

If you get a feeling of déjà vu when using Wyzo, there's good reason for that: It's built on the same browser engine as Firefox, and looks and works much like it. You can, for example, use Firefox add-ins with it. That means that there will be just about no learning curve when trying out this browser. But there might be a bit of confusion as well. In my testing, for example, my download history list in Wyzo was already populated with files I had previously downloaded using Firefox.

Still that's a minor issue--for many users, perhaps not even a problem. If you live to download, and are looking for another browser, Wyzo is worth a try.
