From last few years, the growth in Internet usage via mobile phones has seen a strong surge. Figures suggest that by 2017 more than 90 percent of internet users will access online content through their phones. And India will become the second largest smartphone market in the coming years. Though, due to growing number of smartphone and tablet users, app development market has grown as well as most of the companies are introducing their applications, yet browsers will stand tall for net surfing as this is the platform for any kind of research or other stuffs.

Android devices come preloaded Chrome and Apple with Safari, which runs perfectly fine and fulfill the requirement of the users. But, the time is changing and consumers are looking for other available options that consume less phone’s memory and their data. Some of the other browsers like Firefox, Opera are already popular among the users, and some of the new browsers like UC Browser, who came a few months back, now sharing over 49% market (as of August 2015 per StatCounter). It gained popularity so quickly because of its performance. It brings a smoother browsing experience and also provides a virtual router to turn your laptops into a WiFi hotspot with just few clicks, so that you can connect your mobile devices via UC Free WiFi and save your data cost (available for computers with wireless cards). It also comes with other enhancements, including bug fixes, more options for tab management, and an option for changing your default search engine and more.

Recently, it completely changed UI with its new version 10.7. UCWeb is the first of its kind to give its users complete freedom to personalize the way they discover and access web content. It redefines the role of a modern mobile browser as a content aggregator and distributor. The new browser also comes with a new selection of specially designed background images for an enhanced and classy browsing experience. With brand new customizable homepage offering various options – to make it easier and faster for users to discover and access content – through a manageable card system. They can rearrange the cards (in-app widgets) – such as Headlines, Top Sites, Jokes, Cricket Match, Cricket Topic, Top Free Apps, Opinion, Trending Video, Shopping, and more – according to their own preferences and pin their favorite one to the top. For instance, if you pin the card of Headline on the top, you will be able to see and read the news headlines on the homepage immediately after you open the browser.
