UC Browser 9.5 for Android has been released, which is claimed to have the fastest download speed of any mobile browser on the market. UC Browser 9.5 also includes support for more languages and fonts on web pages, a Web Application Center, an Image Viewer feature for webpages and more.
Fastest download speed of any mobile browser
With UC Browser 9.5, users can download 15% faster on 3G and Wi-Fi compared with the previous version of the browser. Performance on 2G networks has also been accelerated to provide users with a smoother browsing experience.
According to UCWeb, to achieve the fastest download speed, UC Browser utilizes segmented file transfer and multi-threaded downloading technologies to split a single file into separate parts and download those parts simultaneously through multiple channels, while maximizing download efficiency based on the user’s network. For UC Browser 9.5, algorithms for downloading have been further optimized to enhance the efficiency of fetching data from servers. In addition, the efficiency of writing files to storage has also been improved.
Support for more languages and fonts
UC Browser for Android supports even more languages on web pages, including Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and more. When browsing a web page displaying a language that your phone does not support, UC Browser will display a pop-up requesting permission to download the language. UC Browser for Android is now compatible with more fonts as well.
Web Application Center
A Web Application Center has been built into UC Browser 9.5 to embrace the rise of web apps. You can now add your favorite web apps to UC Browser and enjoy mobile life without worrying about constantly downloading, installing and updating.
UC Browser for Android now comes with an Image Viewer, the UC Homescreen Widget and other general enhancements. The Image Viewer serves as a scrolling photo album showcasing all the pictures on the current webpage you are browsing, while the UC Homescreen Widget is an add-on that creates a widget on your phone’s home screen for easy access to UC Browser. Other noticeable enhancements include optimizations made to typing, gesture control and font adjustment.
