It also supports UDisk , a free of cost online storage service for UCWeb users offering them 2GB of permanent storage space online and 4GB of temporary space for 7 days. The new browser can use the UDisk to download multimedia files in the background for faster playback at the same time allowing users to save information such as user account credentials.
