UC Browser 6.0.1308.1011
FREEWAREFILES EDITOR'S REVIEW
UC Browser is one of the most popular Web browsers in the mobile platform. Its main benefits include data compression and fast rendering of Web pages. The browser, which has been available for Symbian, Android and iOS mobile operating systems, is now also available for PC users.
Please note there are two different UC browsers for PC. One is an emulator that requires Java to run and is developed by a different company than the one that created the mobile version. The company has also released its official version, which has been covered in this review.

Using UC Browser for PC
UC Browser for PC brought a new experience right from the installation process, with its installer appearing like a round pop-up screen that always appeared on top of other applications until we installed the browser. It automatically set itself as the default browser.
Not everything about the browser was new though. For example, its user interface resembled that of Google Chrome in many respects, and it automatically imported Chrome's bookmarks.
However, it gave us the option to select our preferred tab style. We decided to try the new bubble style where tabs appeared roundish and overlapped with one another. Placing the cursor over a tab displayed it over the others and gave us the option to edit or delete it.
You can speed up your browsing by enabling next page and link preloading to respectively load the next page and preload a page by pointing to a link so it opens immediately after clicking.
The Cloud Sync feature allowed us to synchronize our bookmarks and open tabs with the browser on our mobile device. We were thus able to enjoy the same browsing experience on both desktop and mobile platforms. We needed to log in to UC browser by either creating an account or using an existing one like Google or Facebook account.
UC Browser for PC includes an intelligent download manager that automatically grouped downloaded files depending on their types. The utility downloaded content fast, and we could pause and resume downloads with ease. It used Thunder download kit to boost download speeds.
The browser supported extensions, and it came preloaded with UC Image Previewer that enabled us to view full-size image simply by hovering over the image thumbnails. The browser is compatible with many Google Chrome extensions. The Ad Block feature allowed us to block pop-up windows and filter page ads, and we could customize the ad blocking rule to suit our requirements.
It also supported mouse gestures and hot-keys for faster browsing. We could also set it to switch tabs when we scrolled the mouse wheel. It switched tabs when we placed the cursor on the tabs bar; otherwise, it scrolled the current page.
If you have been using UC Browser on the mobile platform, then UC Browser for PC will give you a seamless browsing experience on both mobile and desktop environments because you can synchronize your bookmarks and tabs. The PC version brings the familiar user interface used in Google Chrome.
