The UC Browser has been updated to version 8.8. This is another “Full” version release of the browser, not the slightly smaller and supposedly faster “Cloud” version.
New features in 8.7 according to UC:
- Increased download speed: The downloading speed for large files has been optimized. Now, when you are downloading a large-sized file there will no longer be a big drop in download speed.
- Customized shortcut keys: To make accessing your favorite webpages and using common actions more convenient, we’ve added the ability to bind a webpage or action to a shortcut key. So if you want to get to your Download folder fast, you can set it to any number 0-9 or a combination of #+number, and pressing those keys will take you there instantly.
- Sharing on Twitter added: You can now quickly share content on Twitter. Long press what you want to share, then select Twitter in the Share menu.
- Improved File Manager: The File Manager has been enhanced with new features. You can now preview images and create folders for easier sorting of your files.
