UC Browser Mini has been designed as an alternative web browser app for those that have a limited data connection.
The features worth highlighting include an option for limiting image file size or disabling them completely, forcing websites to show stripped down mobile-friendly versions, and optimizing pages to speed up load times and reduce data usage.
If you're on a limited data connection, apps like UC Browser Mini will be perfect. Not only does the app make sure it reduces any data it uses by as much as possible, but it also has a feature to showcase how much data the app has used and how much it has saved through optimization.
If you have a high speed Internet connection with unlimited data, you may not enjoy using UC Browser Mini as much as competitors, such as Google Chrome or Firefox. This is because the web pages are sometimes displayed improperly or without the correct formatting.
If you're not interested in data saving features of UC Browser Mini, there are still a couple key features that may make you appreciate it over other options. One of those features is the sticky search bar that can be attached to your notification panel. With this on, you can pull down the notification panel and quickly make a Google search that will lead you into the UC Browser Mini app.
There are also a number of widgets on the front screen that include trending news topics, app suggestions, and some suggested websites.
