While the UC Browser may be far from the top browser, the program is increasingly gaining traction among mobile and desktop users. Now, the UC Browser is a step closer to dominating the mobile and desktop browser market after developer UCweb finally released the app’s Universal Windows Platform version to Windows Store.

UCweb announced several months ago that it would launch UC Browser on the Windows 10 PCs. The goal is to rival existing browsers that dominate the segment such as Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge. However, the browser won’t be available for mobile users. Also, it remains unclear when the developer plans to launch the mobile version of the app.

UC Browser comes equipped with Cloud Sync, Voice Search, Tile-view Bookmarks, and Password Manager. Other features of the browser include:

  • Minimalist UI: Focus on the content.
