Maxthon is better than torch at least thats what I think. Torch is copy of chrome which has too many unnecessary features.
Maxthon has many features but it doesn't annoy me for some reason and good thing about it is there are many good shortcut keys.
But I still prefer chrome over any browser.
Take chrome with adblock, if you dont like using google software, use chromium, if you dont like chromium use firefox.
Do not use chromium-based-with-a-couple-of-extensions-fot-it-to-look-nice-but-its-actually-junk-software !
