Browser Details column in Activity Logs of Domo Stats is web browser user agent


Hello DomoSapiens, 


I have looking into Domo Stats Activity Log table data, it's very handy and useful. However cannot really identify which browser is the user using as the Browser_Details column brings in web browser user agent details instead. It is very useful, but really hard to build cards and monitor the platform. 


In the below example, you can't easily see if the user is browsing via Chrome or Safari. 


Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/65.0.3325.181 Safari/537.36


Have anyone cracked how to make this more human interpretable? I am trying to build a monitoring plan to track our user activities.

    The browser details section is logging the value that comes through the User-Agent header in requests made by the user's browser. It does contain information indicating the browser, but it also contains a lot of extra/misleading information, since many browsers use similar technology under the hood.


    You could use search the string for indicators of particular browsers, like described in this artivle from Mozilla: but you would need to keep in mind that it may not be perfect as some browsers may change their user agent string over time.
