UC Browser is a web browser that has migrated to a PC from portable devices. There the program was extremely popular and many times occupied top positions in the charts of AppStore and Google Play. When creating a "desktop" version of their brainchild, the developers tried to make it as fast as possible and unlike other modern browsers in terms of placement of basic functions and tools.
When you run the program for the first time, you will see an offer to import bookmarks from other browsers installed in the system. UC Browser will also offer you the option to choose the appearance of the quick access screen: it may look like one in Chrome browser or it may look more like the Speed Dial window in Opera. Everybody, you can start surfing now. By the way, you can browse the web pages in a fast-track mode, where the browser will "compress" the web pages with its "proprietary" algorithms, borrowed directly from the mobile version.
Among other interesting features of UC Browser you can note the preview of the page when hovering the cursor over a tab with it, sound indication on the page, as well as support for cloud data synchronization with the mobile version. Thanks to the latter, you can instantly continue to work with the network on your portable device by moving away from your PC. Outwardly, the program looks quite attractive, the only thing that is a little embarrassing is the unusually wide top panel, which occupies about 10% of the height of the screen. The browser perfectly "copes" with all modern web standards.
