UC Browser

Picture 5 of 5

UC Browser is a fresh looking, Chromium-based browser, that comes packed with all the benefits of Chrome, plus some cool features to make your online experience far more enjoyable. Thanks to its winning combo of speed and reliability, UC Browser has been a top choice for the discerning Android user for a long time. Since becoming available for the Windows market, UC Browser hasn’t disappointed, thanks to features such as a Video/MP3 Grabber, Pop-Out-Video option and a user-friendly Night Mode – while the latest version of UC Browser, 6.1, features an even more powerful built-in AdBlock function, to help keep those all too familiar pop-ups away. Boom!
