It was launched in April 2004 it is currently available on a number of platforms which includes Android, BlackBerry OS, iOS, Java ME, Symbian, Windows Phone and Microsoft Windows.
The browser uses cloud acceleration and data compression technology. UC Browser’s servers act as a proxy which compresses and renders the data of web pages before sending it to users. This process helps to load web content even faster, where Nigeria’s network resources are not what to write about the cloud acceleration and data compression technology makes UC Browser ideal to every Nigerians.
The browser can also adapt to some network environments and support multi-file format downloading. In addition, UC Browser has HTML5 web app and cloud syncing features. It has the feature of “fast download” which increases the downloading speed using multiple thread connection download technique.

The browser supports simultaneous downloads and includes a download manager, including pages for offline reading. It supports pause-and-resume downloads. The new version of download manager has improved features to solve problems while downloading, such as an intermittent internet connection and mislabeled files. The download process will continue even after the app is closed and will also automatically resume if the download is interrupted for some reason. The download manager automatically sorts downloaded files according to their type and places them in the respective folders.
Cloud Acceleration/Data Compression
Data compression reduces data consumption while cloud acceleration speeds up the load time of web pages. Since 2006, UC Browser has been performing more compression and rendering works on its servers, which is similar to the operation of a thin client. UC Browser is the only modern browser lacking support for WOFF2 and Brotli compression.
UCWeb claims that the cloud system used by the browser tends to fetch data from the closest servers available, making the loading process quicker and smoother for users.
