The Internet Explorer has long been a victim of memes and jokes. Its slow speed had always been a source of frustration for users. Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome quickly replaced Microsoft’s Internet Explorer and they are still the most used browsers globally. UC Browser is another name in this category that is quickly emerging and gaining fame for all the right reasons. It’s still not the most downloaded browser in history but because of its light weight in size and its superfast speed, people who use the UC browser simply cannot like another.
The main purpose of the UC Browser app is like any other internet browser. You type in a URL and the browser loads it for you – simple as that. But UC Browser adds a bunch of extra features to make its user experience even more innovative and colorful. UC Browser supports fast downloads, data saving options, ad-block functionality and also helps you check out new music, videos as well as the latest cricket updates. It’s pretty clear that the developers of this browser are huge cricket fans because there’s an entire feature dedicated just for this sport. With the UC Browser, cricket fans can visit recommended cricket sites to support their teams and watch live cricket matches. Live match score updates are also supported by the UC Browser.
Apart from the cricket updates, UC Browser also makes itself useful in finding you a bus or a train ticket. With the built-in UC Browser feature, users can check for their local train timings, check for available seats and book seats if need be all through the UC Browser.
The UC Browser comes in different modes and users can decide which one to use according to their own personal preference. Generally speaking, the basic UC Browser mode supports fast download and the ad-block feature (which can be turned on and off). There’s also an incredibly budget-friendly data saving mode that keeps the information viewed in the browser to a minimum to save mobile data charges.
There are also some bonus modes that we don’t usually find in other competitor internet browsers. The Facebook mode for example is a handy feature of the UC browser that allows for rapid browsing and scrolling through your Facebook feed without the need to load the slow full mobile website of the social media platform.
The Night Mode in UC Browser can be of particular use as well. To make browsing more comfortable at night, users can choose to turn on the Night Mode which activates a blue light filter of sorts and a more darkened theme so it doesn’t irritate the eye.
Users who keep UC Browser as their main phone browser enjoy the many features this app has to offer but perhaps it is the fast downloading option that ultimately trumps all other features. UC Browser itself is one of the fastest browsers out there right not and it supports rapid downloading. Of course the download speed still depends on your connection mostly but UC browser optimizes the connection performance and makes use of the maximum download speed available. Plus, users can also pause their downloads and continue it from where they left anytime. In case of a connection interruption, the UC Browser will automatically pause your downloads and continue them when the connection is reestablished.
There is a particular and quite imminent problem of random ads popping up in this free browser. A small percentage of users have also complained of viruses that came into their phone system through this app.
