Torch is a Chromium-based browser with an integrated torrent downloader. A media grabber helps you to download web videos and audio, and there are tools to help you share websites, media and search results via Twitter and Facebook.
The program doesn't come with any adware, which is good news. It's still a little more intrusive than we would like, though, by default setting itself up as both your default browser and torrent application. If you don't want this, watch closely during installation and clear the relevant checkboxes when they appear.
Once set up, most operations seem straightforward. A "Video" button flashes when you're playing videos or music, for instance, and you can download it with a click. Torrents were downloaded easily enough with the integrated client. And you're able to post directly to Twitter or Facebook from within the program.
There are occasional problems, like Torch's inability to download anything from the Apple Trailers site. Issues we've experienced before seem to be fixed now (we could play movies at Yahoo! Trailers), and we found some worthwhile extras, like the program's ability to extract audio from the videos it downloads.
There are useful features here, then, and if you'd like a more media-capable browser then Torch can certainly help. But anyone looking for real multimedia power will still be better off equipping their favourite PC with a few well-chosen extensions.
