    The Torch Browser contains a built in torrent down loader, among other things. You can see some other info here: http://torchbrowser.com/
    However, when i went to start the installer, my antivirus tripped three times for that stupid iLivid thing.
    Is this safe?

    @dave909904 I just installed it, and as far I can tell it is safe. When I installed it, only Torch got installed. There were no unwanted extras, or any option to choose to install or not install any extras. The one exception is that it does install a Chrome extension, but that should be easy to remove.

    Edit: So far I like Torch. The video downloader works very well.

    @roger_m I agree. The browser is fast and works well, the video and torrent down loader are great features, and it didn't give me any options for PUPs, nor did it force install any.
