Browser size dimension

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hello everyone,

I am interested in analyzing web traffic by the "browser size" dimension available in custom reports, but would like to confirm what analytics reports as the browser size. The description indicates that this value is "visible browser  viewport size", but Is it the size of the browser when a session is initially started or when it ends or some other time in between?

 

Any insight is much appreciated.

Thanks

Hi there,

I think when the session started. However not many people will change their browser size during the session (almost no one I guess). So if you want to get insights from this data, you will do perfectly fine by trusting the numbers in Google Analytics.
