Torch Browser is a web browser that's based on Google Chrome.
If you download a lot of media using your browser, you'll want to check out Torch Browser. If the interface feels familiar, that's because it's based on Google Chrome, and keeps all of the functionality of Chrome intact. Users can still sign into Torch Browser to sync information from different instances of Chrome. The Chrome web store is also fully supported so you get all of the great extensions and web applications available for Chrome.
Torch Browser is a truly a media powerhouse. There's an integrated torrent client, download accelerator, and media grabber. The torrent client opens up in a new tab and has a bunch of basic torrent features. If you are more tech savvy and have a complicated torrent set up, this probably won't replace it. But for those who only torrent once in a while, it's nice to have a client built right into the browser. Users will be able to view info, peers, files, trackers, and more with the Torch Browser torrent client.
The download accelerator claims to speed up downloads and it does work. Our downloads completed quickly and at a higher priority. The differences weren't night and day but were still noticeable.
The media grabber is used to download music and video from across the web. While YouTube worked fine, Torch Browser wasn't able to grab media from Vimeo. It's nice that Torch Browser keeps things simple by only downloading web video in Flash format but it'd be nice to see an option in Torch Browser to choose a format, instead of having to convert them afterward.
Torch Browser also integrates Twitter and Facebook with its "Share" button. This makes it easy to blast off a tweet or Facebook update but you won't be able to browse your notifications or posts. It's simply for sharing a though or link quickly.
Overall, Torch Browser is a great browser for users who download lots of media over the web.

I came across a new browser recently and it was pleasantly surprised to find that it was a really good option. The Torch browser comes with very cool features such as integrated social media applications and so on. It is also a fast and highly secure browser which makes it useful for those who are online for a many hours during the day.
Torch is a very good browser that is even better than realplayer when it comes to downloading and not only that it is very user friendly so i recommend this browser for everyone particularly those who are into social media.
