With an aim to become the best browser for Blackberry users, the canny UCWeb developers have released UC Browser v 7.8 in the BlackBerry app world. The harrowing rival Opera mini has already lured enough users to become the darling of the BB users. However, it would be unwise to completely write off UC Browser and its capability to take BB users by surprise.
It is already the #1 mobile browser in China, especially on those of Symbian and Java based featured phones. The development in Android and iOS community might not be something to take elation of, but that doesn’t mean it is a bad browser either. It is just that both the communities have so many options to choose from that browsers like UC Browser didn’t receive attention it deserves.
Why UC Browser is Best?
The first question which come to user’s mind is, why they should use UC Browser instead of other web browsers? What advantage(s) does it hold over other competitor? Let’s find out why UC Browser is called as one of the best blackberry browser out there.

The newest version reduces the footprints and minimizes the installation package to reduce memory consumption. Its advanced data compression technology compresses the Internet data up to 85% which results in great saving in data cost.
This is especially a boon for those who are on limited data plan or where data is costly. Thus, UC Browser is an ideal choice besides Opera mini for the users. Even, BOLT browser was a good option for the end users. It is also empowered with pre-load mode and download manager to greatly cut down the cost, which otherwise would have been immensely high.
