User Agent Client Hints – Your questions answered
User Agent Client Hints are one of the biggest changes to the device detection industry. Here’s what you need to know.
These HTTP header requests have been introduced within Chromium browsers to replace the User Agent string. While we don’t think this is a good idea, we need to upgrade our device detection capabilities to include support for this feature.

Upgrade Google Analytics
Enable Multi-Screen Tracking
Analytics techniques haven't kept pace with the rapidly evolving techniques of Responsive Web Design (RWD) and server side adaptive design. Google Analytics will provide information about the device model (i.e. iPhone or Galaxy S4) or whether the device is classified as a mobile, tablet or desktop, but this isn't often sufficient to make informed design decisions to improve a web page or site. Consider click through rate (CTR) on advertising. How do you know if adverts on a 3 to 4 inch diagonal screen performs better or worse than a 5 to 6 inch diagonal screen? You don't without some enhancements.
