UC Browser is a minimalist browser designed to increase page loading speed and decrease system resource strain for the Android OS.
UC Browser is an interesting product. It's boldly attempting to enter the browser market that has historically been dominated by larger companies. It promises to decrease page loading times via advanced caching and compression techniques. It also omits certain features that its creators claim are not often used and take up excessive system resources.
Interestingly, it has voice command and gesture response features. It tries to make the browsing experience more natural and intuitive. There are a few studies around the internet that claim that it also has a lower resource strain and therefore leads to longer battery life. It even has an incognito mode that allows the user to browse the internet without logging anything on their local device regarding their usage.
UC Browser may have small advantages over major products, but it doesn't have the advantages of constant patching and oversight that other browsers have. If there is a security issue or major bug, it will take longer to be fixed. It's a superior product for people new to mobile browsing and who want something easy to figure out. For more experienced users, UC Browser would likely be wasted space on their phones.
