A new flavor of the UC Browser is now available for download for devices running under Google’s Android operating system, specifically designed for tablet PCs.

This is the first tablet version of the popular mobile browser, and the beta release is now available for download to provide users with an early glimpse at what it has to offer to them.

The team of developers behind the application notes that this is still work in progress, and that the feedback received from testing the beta release should offer them the possibility to add more enhancements to the software.

Even so, the first UC Browser for Android tablets release comes with a nice range of features, including support for gestures and the possibility to restore recently closed tabs.

Owners of Android tablets who download and install the new flavor of the application will be able to use two fingers to perform gestures that enable them to create new tabs, close the current tab or switch between tabs.

As mentioned above, the browser also comes with a session manager that remembers the recently closed tabs, so that users can reopen them should they want to do so.

The Android tablet version of UC Browser features a File Manager, which is said to be lite and to prove a welcomed option to the application.

Other features of the new application flavor include the possibility to perform searches straight from the URL box, along with a Quick Reads option, which is nothing more than a simple reader meant to provide the possibility to easily keep track of updates from favorite sites.

As mentioned above, all those who will download and install the new application release are encouraged to provide feedback on their experience, so that improvements could be made.

Additional info on the new UC Browser release can be found in this thread on the company’s official forum.
