You see, I am not the sort who will run to my neighbour’s house to watch the replay of the shot that I missed on my browser or my mobile. This is because I fear my neighbour will bang into me as it is he who rushes to my house every time there is a cricket match.
‘There is a nagging lag on my phone,’ he says as he huffs and he puffs because he did not have the patience to wait for the lift and ran up two flights of stairs.
I smile and ask, ‘You mean your browser is still buffering the telecast?’
‘Well, it buffers and I suffer,’ he replies, ‘the download speed is bad and the browsing isn’t smooth.’
‘Fine,’ I reply as I welcome him yet another time, ‘My browser seamlessly cloud syncs and not only sprints with its downloads but also gives you the option to resume as it has a smart file manager.’
Now the short conversation that you’ve just read is quite a regular feature with me… the cricket matches don’t stop and my neighbour never ceases to rush up. But there are other things too that don’t stop… for instance, my neighbour always remembers to ask Specky, my wife, for two cups of tea. Yes, it is always two cups of tea for him as, according to him, ‘One is never enough!’
Now if you think our home becomes an adda for my neighbour and all else comes to a standstill, you’ll be really off the mark. You see, I hand my neighbour my secondary smartphone with Android and he happily sits in the living room watching the cricket match that he cannot live without. As for me, I have installed the UC Browser on my laptop as well and I keep writing my blog posts even as I watch the match on the tiled window on the screen. By the way, even Specky goes about doing her work with one eye glued to the screen of her Tablet.
You see, the best part of watching a match on the UC Browser is that the OS of your device does not pose any threat. This browser works on my laptop as well as on Android, iOS, Windows Phone, Symbian, Java ME and BlackBerry. For those unaware, ‘Alibaba acquired UCWeb last June, in what was at the time the biggest merger in Chinese internet history’. Another interesting bit of stats is that Citizen Lab, based at the University of Toronto, points out that ‘UC Browser had more than 500 million registered users and was the most popular web browser in China and India’.
Before I forget, the UC Browser does give me the edge on the fun angle as well… my neighbour has, in fact, adopted his own theme and it gives him a feeling that he is watching the match in an environment that appeals to him. Well, I don’t mind him coming to our home and watching a cricket match on my device running on the wifi for which I am paying because I know that the UC Browser is lighter and faster that Chrome and Firefox, takes less space and doesn’t trouble the storage, and is fast enough to load without a delay. I have another reason to love this browser and you’ll probably find it interesting. I am able to ‘use all Chrome Extensions in UC Browser for PC as this browser is based on the Google Chromium project and is compatible with most Google Chrome extensions’.
You see, the UC Browsers does deserve the slogan that goes: Surf it all! Surf it fast!
