In the question "Google Analytics - How to See More Detailed Browser and OS Info at Same Time?" the top answer concludes with 'I really wish that Google Analytics had a "Browser and major version" dimension concept so that you could actually see "Chrome 39" as one entity'

Is there a way to configure a view in Google Analytics that consolidates browser sub-versions (mainly Chrome) as a single entry? Bonus points if the solution allows choice between 0 or 1 decimal places (e.g. whether or not to combine 10.0 and 10.1)

    I wish you could do it. I download the data and process it with Perl or in a spreadsheet when I want those numbers. May 8, 2018 at 14:37

This is not currently possible within Google Analytics, but only takes a few short steps to do in excel.

  1. In GA, go to Audience > Technology > Browser & OS.
  2. Set the secondary dimension to "browser version" and download the report as a csv or XLSX.
  3. Assuming everything is sitting on Row 1, the following formula will help: =IFERROR(LEFT(B2,FIND(“.”,B2)-1),B2)
