Browser, operating system and screen resolution data for www.parliament.uk

Following on from my post yesterday about user data, and thanks to a timely suggestion from Roo Reynolds at GDS, here's some more data to try and better understand how people are accessing the parliament website.

Some interesting comparisons perhaps with GOV.UK users

    Interesting to see that Android is a significantly lower percentage but Linux much higher than GDS have experienced.

    I assume the SiteCon browser is used for performance monitoring? Maybe worth removing from the stats to prevent any skew?
