Webpage In-Browser vs. In-Browser Transaction Monitoring

Similarly to the in-browser transaction monitoring, the webpage in-browser provides a real browser experience from a user perspective. Clients can actually ‘experience’ the availability and performance of their webpage’s web applications the same way their website’ visitors do, i.e. via a real browser engine.

While the in-browser transaction is based on the Firefox engine (GECKO) and our clients need to fill in a set of actions that we perform afterwards, the webpage in-browser is based on the WebKit engine identical to the Google Chrome’s one, and clients provide only an URL which we then have to load.

Webpage In-Browser vs. Full-Page Website Monitoring

Both services load the webpage along with all the components on it (images, CSS, JavaScript). However, webpage In-browser is more useful when the client needs to see how his website visitors view a specific webpage as that monitoring service occurs in a real browser. In addition, it will show a realistic view on the page load time. It performs the network requests simultaneously.

In contrast, full-page website monitoring will perform every network request separately. However, it is suitable when you need to check whether all components on the page load properly. 

For more detailed comparison between the two services, see the table below.
