UC Browser is developed by the UCWeb Company, owned by the Chinese Alibaba Group. It was launched in 2004 as an app and can be run on different platforms, such as Android, Blackberry, iOS, Windows Phone, and even Microsoft Windows.
It’s a great browser for downloading and browsing stuff over the internet, but it has been found that the privacy and security is not the Company’s main focus. It’s vulnerable to Logjam, FRFEAK and POODLE because it uses outdated RC4, SSL 3 and SSL 2 which are also having security issues.
But if you don’t plan on logging into your accounts or making payments via this browser, you may use it for other stuff. The PC version is a great browser and very versatile, as it can use the extensions which Google Chrome offers in their online store.
