UC89

The UC Browser has been updated to version 8.9.

This release incudes the following enhancements and fixes:

Incognito Browsing: For your convenience and privacy, when you activate Incognito Browsing your browsing history will not be recorded while it’s active.

Improved Search Bar: The search bar is now better than ever, with tabbed search engines and a drop-down menu offering your previously search terms as you type your query into the search box. This allows you to quickly switch between different search engines for different content, like between YouTube and IMDB, and get more relevant search suggestions.

Select and Copy: The Select and Copy function has been enhanced, allowing you to see how many characters you are selecting in real time. This can help with sharing content where character limits are an issue, such as on Twitter and when sending an SMS.

Optimized Text Input: Better support for inputting non-English text and for inputting text via Java phones with QWERTY and virtual keypads.

Fixed bugs:
1 The “next” botton no response when find in page on touch phone.
2 Can’t save picture in some cases.
3 Some Web sites open error.(e.g. : m.youtube.com, m.google.com)
4 User Interface problems in night mode.
5 Download list disappeared.
P.S. The Open button on download page doesn’t works in some cases.(We have checked the problem. It is a bug of UC server and will be solved as soon as possible)

  1. nice.

  2. GOOD

  3. hi dennis sir ,please tell me is there any way to convert (.jad ) link to ( .jar ) for downloading java applications

  4. Hello dennis,everytime i try to download this version on my juno(clicking the jad link),my phones downloads the file but then receives a message saying size mismatched,error 409.In short,it doesn’t download at all.What am i doing wrong?

    • You aren’t doing any wrong. The error means the app isn’t compatible with the phone. Try one of the older versions of the UC Browser or you can try getting it from the publisher’s site http://wap.ucweb.com

  5. uc broswser is awesome on my innuendo, it is like having my pc in my hand! i think it has some bugs that need to be address. ie: i think there is something up with passwords! i type n password then click ok it wants to change to sum other password! i not sure becuse passwords are now shown!

  6. Hope it works

  7. Very very Thank dennis sir

  8. Nokia 2700c disconnect every time internet in uc 8.9 .
    Plz help

    • Try changing the phone’s packet data setting:
      Setting > connectivity >packet data > packet data conn “when available” That should keep it connected always.

      If that doesn’t work turn on Keep-alive in the UC Browser settings.

  9. is that for all files? ive gotten 906 errors on other sites too… can i just fix it like that then upload them somewhere and redownload?

    • It doesn’t matter which site. Rumkin and the Universal App Loader can fix some 906 errors, the ones caused by spaces in continued lines in the jad file.

  10. I get same error using Rumkin,or if use Jadmaker and sendJad to my phone(I saw no extra lines or spaces using Word or Notepad).I can email you the Jad if you want to look at it.

    • Rumkin and the Universal Uploader on this site both handle continued lines correctly without extra spaces. Jadmaker does not. If the Rumkin processed file doesn’t work I can’t fix it.

  11. Great I will try this on some non Boostapps apps that didnt work.for me

  12. Thanks Minuet works now.Is it an easy fix cause I get this same error a lot

    • The problem is occurs when the .jad file has lines that start with a space. I think this is caused by some Java development tool that breaks up long lines in the .jad by inserting a newline and a space every 72 characters.

      Most phones can handle the spaces without error but Boost and Sprint phones except for Motorolas can’t. The solution is to edit the .jad file and take the spaces and newlines out of the continued lines so that they are one long line. Here’s an example:

      Broken:
      MIDlet-Version: 1.3
      MIDlet-Permissions-Opt: javax.microedition.io.Connector.socket,javax.m
       icroedition.io.Connector.bluetooth.client,javax.microedition.location
       .Location
      Created-By: 1.5.0_04 (Sun Microsystems Inc.)

      Fixed:
      MIDlet-Version: 1.3
      MIDlet-Permissions-Opt: javax.microedition.io.Connector.socket,javax.microedition.io.Connector.bluetooth.client,javax.microedition.location.Location
      Created-By: 1.5.0_04 (Sun Microsystems Inc.)

      (WordPress wraps and truncates lines so it’s hard to see, but the text starting with “MIDlet-Permissions-Opt:” and ending with “javax.microedition.location.Location” is actually all there and on a single line in the fixed version)

      I learned about this issue in Dec, 2010 and any app posted after Dec. 8, 2010 should be OK.

      This is only one possible cause of 906 errors and the only one I know how to fix. If you are getting a 906 error on an app posted before Dec. 8, 2010 let me know in a comment on that app’s page and I will take a look at it and fix it if I can.

  13. I tried minuet and get 906 descriptor length error on Sanyo Taho.

    • Try re-downloading Minuet. I think I’ve fixed the error 906 issue.

  14. Minuet can open local files, but lacks cut and paste ability.

  15. What most of the phone browsers lack is either the ability to open a file in the filesystem, or cut and paste ability. Every browser on a PC that I have seen allows you to put “file:///full/path/to/file.html” in the URL window to display a file on the local machine without even looking at the internet. Most PC software also recognizes “127.0.0.1” as the machine’s own self. Neither of these methods work for phone browsers. – unless I just don’t have the right path?

    Having both cut-and-paste and the ability to open locally stored files would make sending email a bit easier.

    • A proxy browser like UC or Opera will never be able to access a local address like 127.0.0.1 because the actual browser is in the cloud.

      Most direct browsers including Opera Mobile and the Android browser can open local files. The only direct browser for Java is Minuet http://boostapps.com/apps/minuet-browser/ I don’t know if it can open local files or not as I haven’t tried it.

  16. All versions of this browser end up locking you out of Facebook because it does not recognize the browser. The search feature does not work properly on the Innuendo and most of the pre-installed web favorites won’t even load as with all previous versions. Opera Mini is by far the better choice and works perfectly always.

  17. Amazing!! but some mistakes have fundamental for open facebook, and BLOK our account IT makes and can not identify by browser!!
