Editors' Review

+

An all-in-one Web browser is nothing to sneeze at, but Torch Browser isn't going to pry you away from Chrome or Firefox. While it has options that make sharing and social media a breeze, Torch Browser just isn't unique enough to win people's hearts. It lags in performance and its major features aren't worth making the switch.

Torch Browser tries to carve out its niche by being an all-in-one Web browser. This means it can be a media player, a torrent downloader, and a place to combine all of your social networks. However, it doesn't do any of those things well enough to replace what you currently use. Once you get over the novelty, it becomes obvious that Torch Browser isn't that powerful as a Web portal. It's noticeably slower than other browsers and it doesn't have the same sort of add-on support. The layout is just a rip-off of the open-canvas setup of other, more popular browsers. None of this is to say that using it is all a bad experience. Torch Browser still runs circles around Internet Explorer and would be a major upgrade there.

While not a threat to Firefox or Chrome, Torch Browser is easy enough to use and might just impress Internet Explorer users. Heavy downloaders might enjoy the torrent downloader and media player that come with it, too.

January 08, 2013  |  By humpty

Pros

Based on chromium, is fast but needs good hardware.

Got hundreds of unwanted emails after a week. What a scam.
Also loads of warnings from my firewall. Couldn't wait to get rid of it.

"Good stuff"

December 19, 2012  |  By Michael_Walker667

 |  Version: Torch Browser 2.0.0.1614

Pros

I'm happy with the fact that it's very similar to Chrome and just as fast. I use it a lot for downloading torrents and I also like the media button for songs and videos.

Cons

The extensions aren't working but customer support said that they are aware of the issue and working on it.

Summary

It's a very good browser that integrates media and browsing. It offers handy shortcuts for users who want to download different types of media.

"No Match for Firefox or Chromium"

December 17, 2012  |  By RamendraST

 |  Version: Torch Browser 2.0.0.1614

Pros

-Only Good Feature Torrent downloading but we have better 'bitorrent' for this.

Cons

-Poor Perfomance.

-Again the same problem, do not have a good uninstaller.

Whether a 5 star review or 4 star, the users review for this browser is not convinent as some of them gave review only for one or product like imesh etc.

Summary

But as I say Try first for yourself and then believe on others.

"It's fun and light"

November 25, 2012  |  By Emil84A

 |  Version: Torch Browser 2.0.0.1614

Pros

It's a powerful browser with cool built-ins. I use the torrent client a lot.

Cons

Unfortunately, not all of google chrome extensions work on torch. From what I understood, this should be fixed sometime soon.

Summary

The built-ins are superb and the browser itself is very light on my computer. On top of all, It's a lot of fun to use :)
