Nice browser.......very fast.All the available Firefox add-ons work with Wyzo.I had been using Firefox 3.6,but for some odd reason mpegs and mp3s wouldn't play within it. So I switched to Wyzo, and everything works perfectly.

It says version 3.0.3 here and in the name of the DMG, but the version number in Get Info and in the About panel of the app itself says 3.0.2. Hmmm...

I can't see why I would want to use Wyzo instead of Firefox or any of the other decent browsers available. Nothing really unique about it.
I'll stay with Firefox in lieu of Wyzo, with Safari 4 as my default browser. Safari 4's quite a bit more sprightly, although it's still needs some fine tuning; it's still in beta.
No need or inclination to add Wyzo to my browser choices.
Don't know why a new browser is needed unless it can demonstrably blow the others away in some areas. And Wyzo clearly can't.
It's not that Wyzo is bad, it's actually OK, but there's nothing special about it.
It just doesn't wow me.

Why bother? Wyzo took practically 2+ years for their product to reach full feature parity with the Windows version for FireTorrent functionality, and they still don't have a version out for Linux. In the meantime, FoxTorrent has been available for all three versions of Firefox since 2007. You can even already download the FireTorrent extension for Firefox for both Mac and Linux. Many of Wyzo's other features, like mouse gestures and Cooliris, are already available as stand-alone add-ons for Firefox.

Apart from the new theme (which isn't much to write home about anyway) there's almost nothing differentiating it from taking Firefox and adding the requisite extensions and themes to it to match Wyzo's features. At least Flock went to the effort to differentiate itself though a tighter integration with social web services.

It's silly to see them beating their chest about incredible and revolutionary their browser is, when the truth is that they're practically pushing a reskinned Firefox with a mix of free and proprietary extensions pre-added.
