I've noticed this word several times, but I've never found explanation in any dictionary.
Maybe it's taken from german language. Has this word the same meaning in english like in German?
dude i use that word all the time, it means like super or extra awesome or likethat, as in "dude that pizza was uber tasty" and "whoa, that was some sick uber air you caught dog"
Well, Guest was right, it is slang for awesome..
German for the word "above", but more commonly used on the internet for being the best, the top, the supreme, the highest of highest.

It is not English; it is indeed German, and means 'over'. As it is a reasonably well-known German word (as in 'Deutschland, Deutschland, uber alles..', the anthem), an English speaker might use it in conversation.

Only instance I remember is: Über-tracker
