I find rotating with the mouse (middle-click+drag) very unnatural in Blender (2.8).

How can I make it work the same as in Meshlab (which rotates around a track ball)?

There's a setting for that under Main Menu > Edit > Preferences > Navigation Tab > Orbit & Pan choose: Orbit Method: Trackball

enter image description here

Otherwise Blender will constrain you to turntable rotation, which does not allow full free rotation around all axes (it keeps the Z-axis upright while rotating).
