UC Browser finally lands on the Windows 10 Store

UC Browser is a new program available for Redmond's operating system. It's Chinese and it seems to be even better than Microsoft Edge

UC Browser, after a ten-month wait, is now available for all Windows 10 PCs and tablets in a new version dedicated to the Universal Windows Platform (UWP), that is, the application platform present on all devices running the latest release of Redmond's system.

UC Browser comes with content-focused graphics with a minimalist look, not much different from the official Windows 10 browser. The development team says that the graphical interface has been specially optimized to be used either via touch or using the more traditional combination consisting of mouse and keyboard. A browser, in short, able to easily switch between tablet and PC modes, therefore, a perfect navigation tool for 2-in-1 models such as a Surface Pro or Surface Book. A clean and linear design, but hiding a wide range of features. Here are the most interesting features.

A browser to discover

UC Browser supports, for example, mouse gestures and shows favorites in the form of Tiles (those big boxes typical of Windows 10). There's also InPrivate browsing to avoid being tracked, a system for managing and protecting passwords, synchronization of bookmarks on the cloud to make them available on all your devices (PCs, tablets and, in the future, smartphones) and the "Omnibar", a more advanced version of the address bar that lets you search through bookmarks, history entries and the web.

Advanced Voice Search

UC Browser also comes with the "Voice Search" feature: press the microphone icon and say the keywords (in Italian) while the browser takes care of the rest. Not a bad feature for those who use the tablet a lot. UC Browser is, at the moment, only available in English, but since the developers have explicitly asked users to send their feedback, we don't think it will be long before an Italian version is available.
