How does New Relic Browser monitoring work?
Depending on your subscription level, New Relic Browser can monitor a variety of details about everything from page load timing to time spent in the front end, time spent in the back end, geography, and browser type.
You should also know that New Relic Browser only collects performance data, as explained in this document. It does not collect any data used or stored by the monitored application unless you explicitly configure it to do so.
