I use torrent sites too, if u have a good firewall, i use Jetico and think its great! (apart from the annoying amount of times it asks for permission for this that etc) and good virus checker/spyware (i use AVAST and spybot,adaware and Xoft) u shud be ok with any. I prefer Opera for using the torrent sites, faster for me.

And as going to some of the sites u shud be careful if u go to crack sites etc a lot are full of viruses and spyware...

It all comes down to personal preference, I myself like Firefox for it's customization, Opera is the fastest though, not by a huge amount but a noticable amount

For work i have to download reports etc and financial crap, i find Opera to be faster at displaying the images and downloading than IE. And until recently, for 7 months, IE 7 wudnt work on my pc! and that in turn messed up my ie6 making it freeze all the time. Opera by far is the most stable for me, altho it does have some problems with JAVA.
