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.

    "Love it so far! For the most part?"

    Version: Torch Browser 33.0.0.7723

    Pros

    It's a really fast browser,with good media and torrent downloaders, the Torch music and game sites are pretty cool to, and you can also add your own library to the site, but there is also a huge library of music to choose from. I also like the photos on the home page. Wish more browser's were more multi and social media minded like this. Really don't know what Cnet is complaining about?

    Cons

    Not as secure as Firefox, but who is? Really don't like Ask.com search engine, and the browser doesn't seem to give you any other choice, otherwise I would give 5 stars.

    Summary

    I recommend, play on Torch, but do your business on Firefox.
