UC Browser for iPhone gets another boost

UC Browser 10.0 for iPhone gets a major update that comes with a bundle of brand new UI, ad-blocker, a video player and more. While the new UI brings users a fresher feeling, the ad-blocker gives a clutter-free browsing experience. It can detect ads and prevent them from loading. The browser automatically rearranges elements on a web page to give users the best viewing experience. As a result, web pages load much faster and less data is consumed. The new browser also allows users to customize their wallpaper, giving the browsing experience a more personal touch. Apart from that, UC Browser for iPhone is also powered by cloud technology, which not only compresses data and saves cost, but also speeds up web page loading.
