A report by research firm Statcounter states that, UC Browser becomes the world’s largest third party mobile browser in terms of pageview market share. The growth has been driven by its success in populous developing countries. Already the No.1 mobile browser in China and India, UC Browser is now one step closer to its commitment to help more and more users enjoy a convenient and unfettered mobile internet experience.
The report states that towards the end of 2014, UC Browser reached a market share of 11.1%, becoming the 4th most popular mobile browser after Chrome, Safari and Android Browser. But unlike the other three mobile browsers, UC Browser is not a default app on Android or iOS, making it the largest third party mobile browser in the world.
The figure from StatCounter indicates that UC Browser captured 41.23% of total mobile browser usage in India, up 9% from the year earlier. In terms of Daily Active User (DAU), UC Browser has generated a dramatic growth of nearly 50% just in the second half of 2014, garnering millions of mobile users’ loyalty and advocacy in India.
