UC Browser is an alternative to the many Internet browsers you can find for Android. It has a simple interface, but this is more than enough to enjoy surfing the web.
Some of the main features included are the gesture controls that you can use to perform different actions, the ability to quickly switch tabs, and the ability to search via voice commands.
Besides this, UC Browser offers a night mode so that you can browse even without much light and without straining your eyes, something that happens often when you browse too much once in bed. Besides all this, there is a special complement for Facebook that lets you move around the popular social network in a fast and easy way.
Another interesting feature included in UC Browser is the incognito mode. Thanks to this browsing mode, which is similar to Chrome’s incognito function, you can surf the Internet without leaving any trail.
UC Browser is a powerful browser and has a decent set of features, but it doesn’t surpass the best browsers for Android, such as Firefox, Chrome, or Dolphin Browser. The latest updates, nevertheless, make it a solid alternative.
