Torch Browser

Torch Browser is a web browser for Windows and Macintosh developed by Torch Media Inc. with a stable version released on 26 February, 2014. Torch is a unique software that combines powerful and secured browsing with built-in media downloading and sharing features.

Torch is based on the Chromium source code, which gives the browser its fast browsing capabilities. Users can share website addresses, photos, videos, posts etc. by just Drag and Drop action with a mouse or mouse pad. Additionally, It comes with a built in torrent download manager which allows you to download torrents directly from the browser without having to download additional software.

The torrent manager is one of the fastest torrent downloaders in ranking by far. Also the torrent manager allows you to play your file as you download. TORCH Browser comes also with a media grabber with audio extractor which allows users to grab videos or extract audio contents from the web.

This functionality is by far one of a kind with browsers. The browser is also integrated with a built-in download accelerator, which increases download speed up to 3X (Three times) compared to other browsers.

Torch Music, features a free social music discovery service available to music lovers. Just type in the music name and you have it. Torch Game, also an online gaming service is available for the gaming population. There are about a hundred plus (100+) games available on the service.
