UC BrowserHD is a lightweight web browser that was designed with simplicity in mind. The total download for this browser is just 8 MB, and it should run on almost any device that you have in your home. If you are tired of your current browser eating up your system’s resources, then it might be time to take a look at UC BrowserHD. This program offers a wide variety of useful features ranging from text-only browsing to custom picture passwords.

This app was originally developed for mobile devices that had limited computing power. Unlike many of the most popular browsers, UC BrowserHD has an extremely small footprint. In addition to the small download size, this software also uses minimal resources. You should be able to run it on almost any device imaginable as long as you have some form of Windows and access to the internet.

The first thing that most users notice after switching over to UC BrowserHD is the fact that it is much faster than the average browser. Many newer websites are bloated with media, and that has a major impact on load times. With UC BrowserHD, you can pick and choose exactly what type of information is loaded from each website. After you have loaded your favorite sites a few times, quite a bit of the information will be cached as well. Even if your system has 1 GB of RAM, you will still be able to stream videos and download larger files.

Many of the features that are found in UC Browser HD were specifically designed for mobile devices. When you turn on the “text-only” mode, all of the media will be blocked, and that is going to cut down on your data usage. There is also a “speed” mode for faster downloads and “night” mode that automatically alters the colors inside the browser. The biggest drawback of this browser is that it struggles with some newer programming languages.

UC BrowserHD is a comprehensive browser that is easy to use, lightweight, and fast. Some sites won’t load properly if they have been built on certain programming languages, but the vast majority of web pages that you visit should look perfectly fine. If you have been on the lookout for a streamlined browser, then you should try out UC BrowserHD.
