Browser Insights

  1. To enable Browser Insights, navigate to the Speed app of your Cloudflare dashboard and turn on Browser Insights.
  2. With Browser Insights enabled, you can begin to analyze website data on a couple of different levels:
  • Request-level metrics like TCP connection time, or Request time. These metrics are counted on every page load and are impacted by Internet infrastructure, like the mobile network of your end users, or the speed of your servers.
  • Page-level metrics like Page Load Time, which take into account the many requests needed to load a web page, plus the time taken to parse HTML and execute JavaScript. For complete details about using Browser Insights, review the Lite Reading section of this Tip.
