UC Browser is no stranger to Microsoft’s modern Windows platforms, as the app already existed on both Windows Phone and Windows 8 (there was even a Windows RT version specifically aimed at the Surface RT), so the developing team is now looking to continue its efforts with a universal app for Windows 10.
The company behind the app has hinted in a shortthat a Windows 10 version of UC Browser could indeed be released, but the project is still under consideration right now, so more details will only be provided at a later time.
Certainly, UC Browser would be a nice addition to the Windows Store, especially given the fact that universal versions of the most popular browsers out there are still something you rarely see these days.
A rival to Microsoft Edge
can already be downloaded on Windows phones, and the app works quite well, but with a Windows 10 version, the company would obviously tackle a bigger number of users, while also taking advantage of all the improvements that Microsoft introduced in this operating system.
A universal browser would come with the same look and features on all devices, so it’ll have the same interface and work in the exact same way on both PCs and devices.
Certainly, there’s a wide array of features that can be implemented into a universal browser, and Microsoft Edge itself is living proof in this regard. Cortana support and synchronization between devices would be two key features for such an app, but Microsoft is also pushing its app one step forward with the addition of extensions.
Microsoft Edge will finally get extension support with the arrival of the Windows 10 Anniversary Update next month, so there’s no doubt that UC Browser, if it indeed arrives on Windows 10 as a universal app, can become a rival to Microsoft’s new browser.
Thanks for the tip, Jeremy!
