|Browser page||New Relic Browser UI|

Examine trace details
After you select a specific browser trace, additional details appear. Aggregate data for the specific transaction provides a baseline comparison, and a link allows you to quickly run a performance test of the page using WebPageTest.org. An API in the New Relic agent allows you to associate extra details with traces, including user, account, and product names.
