If you're of the opinion that the world needs a browser specifically designed for power downloaders, then Wyzo 3 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 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 Wyzo. 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 our testing, for example, our download history list in Wyzo was already populated with files we had previously downloaded using Firefox.

Still that's a minor issue - for many users, perhaps not even a problem.

MSI GT76

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.
