The ‘Browser type’ dimension lists the organizations who made the browser that the visitor uses. This dimension is useful when you want to see which overarching browsers visitors use. It provides value over the ‘Browsers’ dimension in that it does not list different versions of the same browser as separate dimension items.
This dimension references a lookup table internal to Adobe. The lookup value is based on the
User-Agent HTTP header in image requests. Adobe partners with DeviceAtlas to maintain lookups between user agent and browser.
Dimension items include organizations that make browsers. Common dimension items include
"Google" (the creators of Chrome),
"Apple" (the creators of Safari),
"Microsoft" (the creators of Edge), and
"Mozilla" (the creators of Firefox).
