      • “Find any name word in Page with UC Browser” – On version V10.7.0.636, you have to go to menu > Add-ons > Find-in-page. This is quite a few steps. But it’s better than a lot of other browsers that does not have this function! So far, outside the bloated main browsers, I’ve only found the Yolo browser that has an easy access Find-in-page. Yolo also works with SwiftKey Flow, which UC does not. But Yolo has a minor bug – search Web for selected word/phrase does not work.

    • Hey Shiv,

      Yeah, the same thing happened to me many times. To Avoid this, You can pause and start the download a few times so that in case your phone suddenly switches off you won’t need to restart the download again.

      Moreover, you can just stop the download when your phone don’t have much charge left, or better charge the phone while downloading 🙂

      Regards

      Sagar
