UCWeb, the developer behind UC Browser, India’s No.1 mobile browser with over 48% market share (as per StatCounter) today released two major updates to its iOS and Windows desktop browser. The move signifies company’s expansion into other screens in a bid to provide unified and streamlined browsing experience for its users.
“In this era of multi-screens, daily life is now surrounded by different digital devices. People start their day with the smartphone and move on to laptop,” said Kenny Ye, head of emerging markets at UCWeb’s International Business Department. “We’re making our browser available on multiple platforms to capture this trend.”
UC Browser for PCs is now equipped with UCWeb’s signature cloud-enabled browsing technology in the latest update. Cloud computing technology is one of the greatest strengths of UC Browser for mobile. It is the foundation of UC Browser's key features, such as Data Compression and Cloud Acceleration, Pause-and-Resume Downloads, and many more. This cloud technology is now available on UC Browser for PCs, which can compress data by up to 50%, boosting browsing speed. This is a huge positive for broadband users around the world who use capped data plans on their desktop computers.
UC Browser for PCs now also comes with important features that fans have come to love on mobile. Cloud Sync, for example, allows users to synchronize open tabs and bookmarks from UC Browser for mobile, so that they can seamlessly switch between UC Browser on mobile and PC. UC Browser for PCs also has high-speed downloads, with an option to resume when downloads are interrupted, as well as a smart file manager that automatically categorizes downloaded files by type.UC Browser for iPhone gets another boost
UC Browser 10.0 for iPhone gets a major update that comes with a bundle of brand new UI, ad-blocker, a video player and more. While the new UI brings users a fresher feeling, the ad-blocker gives a clutter-free browsing experience. It can detect ads and prevent them from loading. The browser automatically rearranges elements on a web page to give users the best viewing experience. As a result, web pages load much faster and less data is consumed. The new browser also allows users to customize their wallpaper, giving the browsing experience a more personal touch. Apart from that, UC Browser for iPhone is also powered by cloud technology, which not only compresses data and saves cost, but also speeds up web page loading.
