Beware, IE/Edge, Firefox and Chrome users, a new browser may be on the uprising. However since Torch is a free cloned and modified version of Chrome, there isn't an official portable version of it yet except the illegal ones that might come with virus/spyware, etc. The latest version of it is version 42+.

 

Download online installer: http://www.torchbrowser.com/

There is an offline installer but most of them appears to be outdated until I tried this: http://download.cdn....ll-r50-n-bf.exe

 

I've never heard of this hybrid browser before until I discovered this while playing Tiberium Alliances with a player suggesting to use that browser along with its TA user scripts. I am willing to give it a try.

 

All I know this may contain almost every feature from Firefox, Chrome, Opera, Safari, IE and probably Edge, plus some new features such as a built-in media player, a media grabber, torrent grabber and downloader (which I assume it may not be safe to use even for some users going after pirated programs, etc.), a download accelerator, a Torch music website, a Torch gaming website and Torch facelift.

 

Just wondering, who's tried this browser?

It is built on Chromium so it already had all the Chrome features.. I used it the day it came out but in the end decided against it, not enough support for it nor is is safe in terms of pirating etc IMO.

I already don't like Chrome as it is. Why in the fuck would I use a browser based on it? Seems silly.
