UC browser which has been around for something now, right from the reign of nokia S40 and S60 devices down till now.
But it has not accumulated much popularity and great functions as it now does.
Formerly Opera mobile browser use to be the king while UC browser(some times called UC web browser) and some others were playing the runners up. But today its almost an entirely different thing altogether.
I'll not have to bore you with intro..
UC browser was recently updated especially for the Android users, this new version which is UC browser 9.8 has come with lots of function making your surfing the internet easy and simple with lots of functions which makes UC browser worthwile.

This means you can have your picture(or what ever picture) used as the theme and background picture in UC browser even though you can also download some provided by them(if you wish to)
2; page preloading
Even though this feature has been around on uc web broswer for sometime but it has never been fast as it is now. For example, when you do a google search while you're on the first page of the results brought to you, the next page is loading, same with Facebook and many other sites, making browsing the internet easier and faster.
