When I view the Browser graph in Google Analytics I'm shown the total number of visits over time in the graph. Below I see the aggregate breakdown of browsers over the entire period.

What I want to see is browser usage over time for all (or some) of the browsers.

I can of course drill down into individual browsers (and further into versions) but this only shows me the usage of one browser at a time. How can I put all this information into one graph without exporting the data piece by piece and putting it in Excel?

It seems like a really simple view of data that anyone would want so I'm surprised it's not available in GA (or obvious for that matter).

You can use advanced segments to do this for up to four browsers.

Here's the first page of help for advanced segments: https://support.google.com/analytics/bin/answer.py?hl=en-GB&answer=1033017&topic=1032940&rd=1

Create a segment for each browser and then use the advanced segments option on the graph to display those segments on it.
