UCWeb, the developer behind UC Browser, today released two major updates to its iOS and Windows desktop browsers.
The move signifies company's expansion into other screens in a bid to provide unified and streamlined browsing experience for its users.
"In this era of multi-screens, daily life is now surrounded by different digital devices. People start their day with the smartphone and move on to laptop," said Kenny Ye, head of Emerging Markets at UCWeb's International Business Department. "We're making our browser available on multiple platforms to capture this trend."
UC Browser for PCs is now equipped with UCWeb's signature cloud-enabled browsing technology in the latest update.
Cloud computing technology is one of the greatest strengths of UC Browser for mobile. It is the foundation of UC Browser's key features, such as Data Compression and Cloud Acceleration, Pause-and-Resume Downloads, and many more.
This cloud technology is now available on UC Browser for PCs, which can compress data by up to 50%, boosting browsing speed. This is a huge positive for broadband users around the world who use capped data plans on their desktop computers.
UC Browser for PCs also has high-speed downloads, with an option to resume when downloads are interrupted, as well as a smart file manager that automatically categorizes downloaded files by type.
