The Browsers page in New Relic Browser provides information about your end users' experience with your app based on which browser they use, such as Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Microsoft Internet Explorer, and Apple Safari. This page includes:
- Top browsers by throughput (pages per minute or ppm)
- Average page load time by platform type (mobile, tablet, desktop)
Drill-down charts also segment the selected browser type by version; for example, Chrome 31, 32, 33, etc. This helps you quickly determine whether problems with page load timing may be related to a specific browser type or platform, or whether the problem is more widespread.

Viewing specific browser details
The drill-down details include a breakdown by version and the average page load time.
Color-coded segments for page load timing include:
- Request queuing (black): Wait time between the web server and the application code. Large numbers indicate a busy application server.
- Web application (purple): Time spent in the application code.
- Network (brown): The network latency, or time it takes for a request to make a round trip over the Internet.
- DOM processing (yellow): In the browser, parsing and interpreting the HTML and retrieving assets. Measured by the browser's DOMContentLoaded event.
