Our team at Microsoft tried to get the latest data of the browser percentage from our customers in Azure Portal. However, I don’t see the ‘New Edge” in client_Browser column.
Does Azure capture browser usage for the new Edge? The answer is no at this moment.
It is easy to repro:
1. Use the new Edge (Edge Dev: Version 126.96.36.199) to browse the Prod/PPE/DEV portal many times.
2. Go to Azure portal-> Application insights- Logs (Analytics).
3. Query the client browser.
4. Chrome 77.0 is showing up , but it is not correct. It should be Edge 77.0
We know that the new Edge is based on Chromium. It is not Chrome 77.0. It is supposed to be Edge 77.0.
Here is the query.
| where client_Browser =='Chrome 77.0'
| project client_Type, client_Browser, client_OS , timestamp , client_City
| limit 10
| project client_Type, client_Browser, client_Model, client_OS ,client_City
| summarize count() by client_Browser
I don't see "New Edge" appear. I sent the email to Azure Monitor DL and one guy opened the bug for me. Hopefully this issue can be fixed soon.
