Import-Export-Sync your Bookmarks from UC Browser
You visit many web pages but only a few of them are special which are saved in your bookmark. If you use many devices at one go then, you may also need to transfer your bookmarks from the one to another device.
Doing this is pretty easy in UC Browser. You can import, export your bookmarks and even sync them between all your devices.
For doing this go to bookmarks from the Menu in UC Browser and sign in with your account. Now you have to sign in to all your device where you are using the UC Browser so that all these devices can get the bookmarks using the sync feature. You can see the import and export option near the bookmarks, so use them to import your bookmarks and create a backup of them.
Block-Ads using UC Browser
Some websites are damn ugly because they have ads everywhere. People create them because they just want to make money by showing ads to the users. Now when you face this kind of problem you normally just avoid the site and use another one. But, what if you really need to access that website.
In these cases UC Browser will help you, there is a built-in feature in UC Browser which blocks all the ads on any website. I think they have included this to make web surfing experience faster, but ironically this is pretty helpful also. You can check the ad-blocking settings from the menu of UC Browser.
Find any name word in Page with UC Browser
In case you need to find any specific word or text in any web page you can use the Find in Page feature of UC Browser instead of manually checking the entire document.
Go to the menu, there you will find this feature. I think you will find this find in page feature of UC browser really helpful.
Take Screenshot of Web pages using UC Browser
We often need to take screenshots of web pages, in Android, you can easily take a screenshot by pressing the power button and volume down keys at the same time. But, do you know that you can take screenshots of websites directly from UC Browser itself.
For doing this open menu and in the second tile of the menu you will see a screenshot option. Recently, they have included some Called UC Doddles with the screenshots to feature so now you can add customized doddles to your web screenshots using UC Browser. For doing this you may need to use the latest version of UC Browser.
Enable Night Mode on UC Browser
Night mode is one of the most useful features which UC Browser has. You can enable light mode from the menu to take care of your eyes at night. It will reduce the screen light to protect your eyes from extra light at night. I love this feature of UC Browser. Whenever I browse the web late at night I turn night mode on.
Use Themes to Customize UC Browser
You can use any image you want as a theme for UC Browser. Go to Settings> themes and select any theme available there or you can use any image of your phone as a background image of UC Browser. Using themes is a great idea, this will give a new customized look to your UC Browser.
View Web Sites as Desktop on UC Browser
Sometimes you may need to visit websites as desktop mode, you can use the UC Browser to do so. Just Go to menu and deselect zoom mode to view websites as a desktop device.
Add Random Websites to the Speed Dial of UC Browser
The Speed dial feature of UC browser makes the web browsing faster. You can see that some websites are added to the speed dial as default, but you can remove then just long press on any speed dial and you will see the option to remove that. After you remove the default websites from speed dial you can add any website to that space.
For adding any random website that you have visited before to the speed dial (homepage and new tab) of UC Browser you have to go to history on UC Browser (from menu) and tap on the page which you want to add to speed dial and then click on add it to the speed dial.
Now a day’s most of the popular websites have a build in sharing option so that you can share those web pages website on social media. But, in case you are unable to find those share buttons, you can manually share the web pages on various popular social media networks like Facebook, Twitter, Google plus and etc. using UC Browser.
