Developers of UC browser have optimised it to run on Android tablet PCs. Features like gestures, the ability to re-open closed tabs, an in-built file manager, quick reads and the omnibox have also been added in this browser.
Gestures, the newly added feature adds new convenient gestures to the browser and allows easy browsing. To open a new tab, users just have to swipe down with two fingers and swipe up to close a tab. To switch between different the different tabs, you just need to swipe left and right.
Users can also access the file manager from Settings. This enables them to use simple file functions such as copying, moving or deleting folders, and customise the default download path. Users can see the recently closed tabs by simply tapping the button on the top left corner of the browser. Closed tabs can be re-opened by tapping on the URLs.
The developers have also added the Omnibox, which autofills the content when you are typing in the URL bar. It also has the ability to automatically decide whether the content is a URL or keywords to be searched. This capability makes browsing a much better experience. Quick Reads is a feature that allows the users to quickly get the latest posts from the website of their choice.
UC browser got an update for Java 8.6 in October. The update provides faster and better download and upload management. Users can now preview images before uploading. The update has also enabled virtual keyboard optimisation. The most noticeable change that the upgrade brings is the ‘Offline Download’ feature. With this feature, users can download content even though the phone memory has already been exhausted.
It is worth mentioning here that UC Browser is currently available for over 3,000 different models of cell phones from more than 200 OEMs. The browser is also compatible with all mainstream operating systems including Symbian, Android, iOS, Windows Phone, Win CE, Java, MTK and BlackBerry.
