UC Browser for Android is another browser alternative for your Android device. It provides a fast browsing experience and some awesome new tricks that will make the traditional web browsing an even more seamless experience.
This browser is mainly serves as a great alternative of the more popular ones, such as Firefox, Chrome, Opera etc., but is in no means less powerful. In fact, it’s one of the fastest browsers we’ve ever seen on an Android device. Pages are rendered in an instant and once the content is rendered, it stays that way with no reloads whatsoever. Although there is a certain amount of choppiness when scroling through the sites, it’s not a big deal and the overall speed does indeed make up for that. It’s also satisfying to see that websites are rendered very correctly without the content being distorted and out of its place.
The user interface is nice, clean and user-friendly. At the bottom there are the usual forward and back keys, tab previews, home and more options keys. At the top, there are the search bar and the URL bar. In our opinion, the environment is very neatly organized and is very practical in real life.
As you would expect from a modern web browser, UC Browser supports tabbed browsing. It’s possible to open multiple web pages at once and that doesn’t cause any slowdowns. Tabs can be chosen by just tapping on them. But, there’s one cool feature that grabbed our attention. That feature is the multi-touch gestures support. There are a couple of gestures that let you manage your tabs and gravitate smoothly from one tab to another. It’s also possible to add new as well as close tabs this way. This is probably this browser‘s best feature and it’s the main thing that made me like it so much.
One more thing that needs to be covered is the search bar. It’s just an usual search bar with which it’s possible to search for sites on Google as well as other search engines. It also gives you the opportunity to search for videos on YouTube directly from there, which is also a cool feature.
All in all UC Browser is one of the most powerful and feature-rich browsers for Android today. Fortunately for you and us, it can be downloaded for free from the Google Play Store.
