Comparison selector

Available dimensions include:

  • Browser
  • Country code
  • Device
  • Operating system
  • Tags 
  • URL
  • Version

In this example, we'll select the Browser dimension. 

Browser selected

Once the dimension has been selected, you can select two different browsers to compare side by side.

Search for Edge

You can search for any browser which your users are browsing your web app on. (e.g. If none of your users are using Vivaldi, then that won't show up in the search results)

Edge versus Firefox

Once the comparison is complete, you'll see there are now additional modules below the comparison selector.

First is the Performance module:

Performance module

Here your team can view how the page speed compares for users between the two browsers, and see the page load time over time. This can help to identify spikes and trends in your app's performance.

Next is the Most requested pages module:

Most requested pages module

This shows your team the number of views and page load time of your app's most requested pages. 

Hover over the load time value for a more detailed breakdown of the page load time.

The Users module gives your team insight into how your users experience your app.
