The most popular browser in India and China is UC browser. UC Web Inc is acquired by e-commerce giant Alibaba Group which is a Chinese company.

Over more than 500 million users UC browser is rapidly growing. It has a large number of users because they are providing very good speed and fancy user interface. It has also many sister apps which are also growing speedily. UC browser is also providing many plugins which are improving the quality of the browser.

How Google Collects Our Information:

Google Chrome is also taking our data but we are giving all the permissions to access our data. Google knows everything about your activity on your computer and mobile if your Gmail account is connected. Gmail account is the only source which can give your information to Google.

Moreover, the sites you have visited has already include google analytics that manages the whole traffic of the website.

Conclusion:

That’s why I have not included any word related to UC Browser in one of my previous post ” Make Great Browsing Experience With Browser Extensions”. Most of the people are still not aware of this fact. I am recommending you to use Chrome or Firefox in your smartphone/personal computer instead of UC Browse.
