UC Browser is familiar to every Android user. At one time, it became a good alternative to mobile Chrome. Now the number of active users is about 100 million people worldwide. The interface unmistakably guesses the features of Google Chrome. This is not surprising, because the browser uses the time-tested Chromium platform. When interacting, users can actively control the app with gestures. Another important plus is the speed of work, and not only the application itself, but also the loading of websites, which adapts to the capabilities of Internet channel used.
Safe principle of displaying sites
When you launch UC Browser for the first time, its start screen contains two pages, left of which requires quick access to recommended resources of various categories. The right one contains a customizable express panel.
The browser supports automatic text fit to the screen width. No matter how close you are and what font size you choose, the text will always fit on the screen.
It is worth noting that the browser supports flash. Initially, all flash inserts are disabled. However, one tap can easily enable them. For a mobile browser, this is absolutely the right decision. In addition, the browser has a built-in ad blocker.
There is a special “Night mode” in UC Browser for comfortable reading at night. The background of the site in it changes to black and font becomes white, along with muting screen brightness. A similar mode is often available in reader programs.
The simplest interface
At the top of the window is the address bar. The system of “tips” works in the address bar. If you start typing website name, the browser tells you the end of it, based on your browsing history and bookmarks. If you put a period, the browser shows possible domains. Use the address for searching. In addition to the usual search, there are special video and music search modes.
To the left of it is an asterisk icon. It not only allows you to bookmark a site, but also place it on the main screen of your browser or put its shortcut on your device desktop.
The address bar comes fixed above the content of web page and when scrolling “leaves” the top edge of screen along with the text. This does not cause inconvenience – just press the “Menu” button to call it. This approach allows you to use the maximum screen area to display the web page itself without occupying it with unnecessary service elements.
New generation management
The developers have not forgotten about the support of gestures. In addition to standard scrolling and flipping through tabs, the browser supports two-finger swipes. Swipe up will close the current tab, while swipe down will open a new one. It is worth noting that the interface works very smoothly, and all transitions (whether it is closing a tab or switching to night mode) are beautifully animated.
Quick Mode Availability
UC Browser has a special mode for browsing sites over a mobile connection called “Quick Mode”. When using it, the developers promise up to 90% traffic savings. Apparently, it works on the same principle as Opera mini, i.e. it passes all traffic through some kind of proxy server.
For the download manager, you can specify the default folder for saving downloaded files and limit the number of simultaneous downloads. You can also view traffic consumption statistics and evaluate the effectiveness of compression.
Useful features for everyone
UDisk is a cloud storage service of UC Browser. It is unlikely to become a replacement for DropBox, but thanks to full integration with the browser, it can sometimes be very useful. The simplest example is cloud uploading.
Cloud upload is a way to upload a file directly to the cloud, bypassing your smartphone. At the same time, there is no consumption for mobile traffic. Users can download the file itself later at any time both to the phone and to the PC.
Offline download function works exactly the opposite. When planning to watch some video on the road, you can download it to your phone’s memory in advance. No additional programs or plug-ins are required for this. Utility supports popular video hostings.
The browser supports bookmark synchronization in the cloud. Thanks to the special UC Sync plugin for the desktop version of Google Chrome, it is possible to synchronize it with a PC.
