Empathy in Design and Development: Analytics as a User Research Tool
Another thing to do when looking at what our users do on our site is to see where they come from and what device they are browsing with. I used to not care as much about where users were coming from as much as I cared about what browsers they were using.
But then I started looking at the logs and some strange browsers appeared in the logs. Not many and not often enough to warrant making changes but enough to take a look at these funky browsers: Opera Mini and UC browser.
The reason why this is important is learning about your user. It helps you figure out the combination of geographical location, browser and (mobile) devices for your users. If you're working on emerging markets or if you have users from countries you were not expecting it may help you to research those browsers.
