UC Browser 7.8

The UC Browser has been upgraded to version 7.8.  According to UC, the new features in this release include:

  • “View Image Mode”  – zoom images and view original size images
  • 30% faster page loads
  • New “remember current page” and “clear all browsing history” options when closing the browser
  • Close current window with one click  using the right softkey
  • You can now switch to the main menu while a page is loading

I tested UC 7.8 on the Motorola Rambler (it doesn’t work on the iDEN phones).

As with UC Browser 7.7,  inline editing doesn’t work  correctly with the Rambler’s QWERTY keyboard (there’s no way to type uppercase letters and the  “Q” and “P” keys act like the left and right soft keys).  It’s not possible to disable inline editing either. You have to press the left softkey and choose “Edit” or “Symbol/Paste” on each field to switch to full-screen.

At least the bug in 7.7 where switching to fullscreen edit turned on caps-lock is fixed.

  1. Very good

  2. Its g

  3. UC Browser is good supported in my Nokia 6630 phone….!

  4. I cannot run uc browser more than version 7.6 on my samsung gt e2152 what is the problem

  5. Best site and easy .i hope meet me 7.8 java

  6. same with me…..error…

  7. When I am trying to open the internet,it shows me that-connection failed.i can’t access any web address.what do i do?

    • You probably need to set the correct access point UC Browser in the phone’s application manager.

  8. I downloaded the update of the uc browser but it kept on telling me uncaught error and refuse to open when I tried to open it. What do I do? Thanks

  9. does anybody know how to clear cache and cookies on uc browser? thanks!

    • never mind i figured it out thanks

  10. Does this work in edge network? Because it doesn’t seem to be going to anysites for me. So I’m assuming you must have 3G?

    • Yes it works on Edge.

  11. Hey dennis do u know if an update is coming for this browser or wat its been awhile since they had an update let me kno asap if yes

    • UC 7.9 is supposed to be launching this week Wednesday or Thursday. I’ll put it on BoostApps when it does.

  12. My Uc can’t watch video online . So how to do to fix it.

    • The UC browser does not itself have the ability to play videos. When you click on a video link it either does nothing or gives you the choice to Save or Open the video. If you choose Open it transfers control to the phone’s built in browser or media player.

      Not all Boost phones can play videos and the ones that can only play videos that are formatted for mobile such as the ones on http://m.youtube.com.

      Boost phones that I know can play at least some videos are the Incognito, Innuendo, Rant, KRZR, BlackBerry Curve, Prevail, Bali and Rambler.

      The Juno, Mirro and Seek can not play videos. I don’t know about the others. I good rule of thumb is if the phone has a camcorder it can probably play at least some mobile formatted web videos

      The hand off between UC and the built in browser doesn’t always work so you are better off just using the built in browser for video sites. Another good option is the Bolt browser. The Bolt cloud server converts some Flash videos to ones that video capable phones can display.

  13. Havent heard nothing back but account is fine now must have been a glitch thx

    • Good to hear that it’s resolved.

  14. Still trying to figure it out will let you know when i find out for shure

  15. They said it was a charge from uc and if not paid in two days they would shut off service to phone still trying to contact uc on this

    • Very strange, I’ve downloaded multiple versions of the UC Browser and have never been charged. I don’t see how UC would even be able to determine your phone number in order to bill it to you.

  16. Warning just downloaded it and they charged 10 dollars and change to my boost account the phone is a samsung factor

    • Except for the games and apps that Boost sells Boost does not charge fro downloading apps. The $10 charge is for something else. Call Boost or check your online account records to see what.

  17. Also, the description says you can’t type uppercase letters. You can. I know with the Incognito, you just have to hold down the Shift key (not just click it) for a little while AS you click whatever letter key. Maybe this works for other cells, too.

    • Thanks for sharing this discovery. It should help other Incognito users. FWIW, holding down Caps while typing on the Ramber has no effect, still types l/c characters.

  18. I really do like this browser. It’s faster than the browser that came with the phone (although I still like that one, too), I can input info in UC that I couldn’t in my regular browser (for ex. I copied & pasted updated resumés-already uploaded from my computer- AND emailed them thru the jobsite I use). I can also download stuff straight to my cell! Before, I had to send from a computer. Some things are iffy, but not enough for me to mention. Great app!

  19. To type the letter “P” places it usually can’t be input, just press the Fn key and hold it down as you press the “U” key, clicking on the “U” key to select a p or whatever character from a little selection ticker that shows up on the screen. Same thing with inputting numbers and some of the other letters after p. Just hold down Fn and select with the “U” key.

    • Thanks for the tip. That should help Incognito users. It doesn’t work that way on the Rambler though Fn + U enters a ‘%’

  20. It is too good working my nokia phone.i m rakesh das from patharpara,midnapore.

  21. the ucbrowser is now available for blackberry so i decided to try it on my BB 8330 curve but it won’t download it says http error 500 does anybody know what that means? is it not compatible?

  22. i have the uc 7.8 on my incognito but i never could figure out how to watch youtube videos. i select the video and it says load…. it doesnt go to the media player. help help

    • If it doesn’t work, it doesn’t work. Try a different browser. Actually, the built in browser is probably the best for YouTube on the Incognito.

  23. Its ok but the P button doesnt work on the incognito. It only work when the “please enter” screen appears. youtube doesnt to fit the screen size like the regular browser does
