The popular UC Browser has just added a new platform to its compatibility list, as the developers have announced the availability of BlackBerry version.
Developed by UC Mobile, the UC Browser runs on a wide range of platforms such as Symbian, Android, Java, Windows Mobile, MTK, iPhone and Brew.
Currently, the browser is compatible with more than 100 phone brands and about 2000 models. UC Browser was originally launched in April 2004 as a Java-only application, but it has seen dramatic changes over the years.
It appears that all the features that makes UC Browser one of the fastest browsers for mobile phones have also been included with the Blackberry version, including traffic saving, powerful downloading function, and user experience oriented features.
According to the developers, the UC Browser is 2 seconds faster than the Opera Mini when various webpages are loaded.
In addition, UC Browser saves 30% more traffic than Opera Mini, which means users could save up to 30% of their bills to the carriers.
The application supports more WAP2.0 tags and upgrades the compatibility to WAP 2.0 page.
One of the most useful features included with the UC Browser 7.8 for BlackBerry is the Start Page Site Navigation, which allows users to access their favorite websites with only one click.
Furthermore, the application now supports the multi-tread download, as well as the ability to pause and resume any downloads.
UC Browser for BlackBerry supports “remember current page” and “clear all browser history” operations.
Obviously, the browser supports customization, so users will be able to change themes and make the browser more crisp and vivid.
UC Browser 7.8 for BlackBerry is now available as a free download from Softpedia.
However, the application will soon be available directly from the phone via BlackBerry App World.
