Some good experience with UC Browser or UC Web:

  • Fast browsing -  it renders the page fast and smooth
  • Power User settings - you can define servers i.e Proxy, port
  • Free internet browsing tweaks - this is one of the best feature i had experience with UC browser or UCWeb. The java version can be modified or been modified by Handle UI version to input and tweak server settings to gain free internet access via GPRS/3G cellular network.
