I'm tracking a client website with both Google Analytics and New Relic. There's a bit of discrepency between the browser usage though (i think).
Google Analytics reports Chrome as top used browser, followed by IE with almost half number of sessions:
New Relic doesn't have a comparative metric, but it reports 1.6 times higher throughput for IE than Chrome:
I understand that "number of sessions" and "pages per minute" by browser are not directly comparable: sessions are recorded only after ga script is fully loaded and throughput includes requests by bots or some non-user-accountable hits.
But besides that, could there be another explanation for such a high IE throughput? If throughput for IE is so high, it should be either due to high number of sessions or pages/session, but both of which are lower compared to Chrome (according to GA).
