Browser Width/Height

Metrics that refer to the horizontal/vertical distance of the data in the browser window only. More specifically, the browser
Adobe Analytics uses the browser height and width only from the first hit of a visit. The rest of the hits do not get the attribution for the same visit. The browser width/height dimensions capture similar but distinct values when compared with mobile screen size .
For example, when you break down browser width or height by mobile resolution, you need to be aware of these distinctions:
  • The Mobile Device Resolutions are the physical values associated with the device. For example, under Mobile Device Resolutions the Galaxy S8 would appear as 2,960 x 1,440. The Mobile Device Resolution is retrieved from a 3rd-party service after the device is identified.
  • By contrast, under the Browser Height and Width values, you see the CSS (logical) values of 740 x 360. The Browser values rely on the Javascript/CSS data.
