This browser that's meant to be an alternative to the dictatorship imposed by other browsers for Android smartphones and tablets such as Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox also goes by the name of UCWeb. Although these browsers offer us functions and features that allow us to browse quickly and comfortably, there are other options apart from these Internet giants.
UC Browser is a reliable alternative that has arrived to join others of the likes of Dolphin Browser or Opera Mini to offer the user a more friendly browsing experience, in which high speed and low data consumption are a must.
Browser that blocks adverts and pop-ups
One of the most acclaimed functions is its capacity to block adverts and pop-up windows, which means that we don't have to download any kind of additional ad-blocker or browser extension. Thus, on the one hand, we can get rid of intrusive and annoying adverts that hinder our browsing. And on the other, we can save data by reducing the traffic stemming from loading those adverts.
The truth is that precisely this lower data consumption is one of its most appreciated functions, which makes it the perfect browser for the humblest data plans or for situations in which our connection isn't as fast as we'd like.

This web browser offered us its first version for PC back in 2004 (and is still offering us a stable version for Windows 10) and then landed on mobile platforms of the likes of Android and iPhone. In fact, it incorporates its own kernel and it was the first browser to introduce cloud computing technology in its mobile apps, which allows it to process the traffic on online servers before serving it to the user. It has become an app that's especially popular in Asia where it's got more than 400 million users.
